Arsene Wenger has a plan in place to play Mesut Ozil and the incoming Henrikh Mkhitaryan together in same Arsenal team.

The Gunners boss will first have to tie the German down to a new deal, as his current contract is set to expire at the end of the season.

But it seems Wenger is confident of convincing Ozil, who currently earns £140,000 per week at Arsenal, to stay in north London.

The Gunners deals for Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are close to being completed this January, and the duo are set to earn around £200,000 per week.

Ozil will likely earn the same if he agrees to pen a new contract at the Emirates, which would considerably bolster Arsenal’s attack going into the business end of the season.

Despite losing Sanchez, Arsenal already have Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette on their books, and they’re set to gain the additional attacking prowess of both Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang too.

When asked to reveal his plans to accommodate all the players, Wenger said: “How do I fit them in? I just play the good players.

“They can always play together. Today all the players we had on the pitch were attacking players.

“[Alex] Iwobi, Ozil, [Jack] Wilshere, Lacazette, [Granit] Xhaka – they are all offensive players.”

Jamie Redknapp recently spoke out about Ozil’s current contract situation at Arsenal, and explained how the German is in a good position to get a payrise.
