Arsenal are apparently ready to cash in on one of the club´s star players Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, who are also being called contract rebels after they turned down the offers of new contracts. This means, with their current deals set to run out at the end of this season the club could lose both highly rated players for nothing.
This situation would clearly not appeal to the money men in charge of our club, or Arsene Wenger either for that matter, but this has to be balanced with the need to be competitive this season, even if the long awaited Premier League trophy is already slipping out of our grasp once again with our wretched away record continuing at the weekend after losing to Watford and with Man City looking ominously unstoppable.
The Daily Star reports that just one of the two will be sold in the January transfer window to avoid the worst case financial scenario, but which of the rebels will it be?
Most Arsenal fans would go for the German, as Alexis with his attitude right is a much more important player on the pitch, but there is less demand for him and probably less money to come. There is also the possibility of selling Sanchez to a club outside the EPL and ensuring he does not strengthen a direct rival.
Which Gunner would you prefer to sell? And which do you think will be sold?
