Breaking! “Sell them” Arsene Wenger receives order to sell Arsenal duo

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger should not be afraid to sell want-away duo Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, according to Gunners legend Martin Keown.

The Arsenal attackers have been key performers for the club this season despite a disappointing all-round campaign, with Sanchez scoring the opener as Wenger’s side restored some pride with an FA Cup final win over Chelsea last week.

Still, Keown believes that Arsenal would survive without them, and should not bend over backwards to keep two players who do not want to be there.

The former defender also slammed the big-name duo for going missing when it mattered most as Arsenal’s form took a major hit in the early part of 2017.

‘If they have to say cheerio to those two players, then that is the right decision,’ Keown told BBC 5 Live.

‘They have been overindulged at times this season and they let Arsenal down in the period when they lost twice to Bayern Munich, conceding 10 goals. That is the level of the problem.

‘The manager needs to make some really tough decisions now. Sanchez’s contract needs to get 100% secured. Is that going to happen? Will Ozil leave?

‘I am sure both players want to go elsewhere because they want to win the Champions League, win the Premier League and maybe they do not feel it can be done at Arsenal. The club is bigger than two individuals.’
