Who deserves a new contract between Ozil and Sanchez?.
The two star players at Arsenal are yet to sign new contracts, well that is not news! However, I just want to try and analyze the impacts of both players this season and maybe conclude on who really deserves a contract renewal, which involves improved financial terms and bonuses.
Alexis Sanchez: The Chilean start began the season with a bang! At the early stages of this season, he scored quality goals against Chelsea and many other teams. He is currently the highest goal scorer at Arsenal. He has contributed a lot the few successes we have witnessed as a team this season. He is strong, fast, and skillful and has an eye for goals. He has also assisted players to score goals this season. He is the complete player any club can’t afford to lose. However, the lack of competitiveness of the Arsenal team has not gone down well with him. He does not like to be on the losing side and he exhibits his displeasure whenever the team does not play well which is apparently annoying the rest of the team. His contract negotiations with the club have dragged on for so long and it is high time it got sorted out.
Mesut Ozil: Arsenal’s king of assist last season has not really been impressive this season. He also began the season on a bright note; he scored a beautiful goal earlier in the season against Chelsea. He played beautifully against PSG in the first game of the Champions league. The hat-trick he scored against one of our group opponents in the group stage of the Champions league, will be one of the few bright games he has played for Arsenal this season. However, his performances of recent has not been a reflections of his status; his performances in big games is nothing to write home about this season. Is he worth a new contract?
If you were asked to choose who to offer a new contract between these two players, who would you pick?
