Former Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Petit has claimed that the upturn in form for Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil could be because they have intentions to stay.
The superstar duo have been central in our improved form in recent months, and the cloud over their futures may well be helping them to perform.
There is a huge likelihood that the pair are playing their hearts out in their bid to attract interest from potential suitors with their futures being up in the air, but there could well be the possibility that they are fighting to stay also.
Ozil himself has always claimed that he is willing to stay at the club, while the Chilean has also said that contract negotiations had gone wrong because of financial issues, and the pair could well have been challenged to earn their requested wage demands.
Emmanuel Petit is praising the current form of the forwards, whilst asking the question as to the reasoning for the recent performances.
“Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil are coming back to the way they should be playing for Arsene Wenger,” Petit said.
“It’s great news for Arsenal that they’ve returned to form.
“But is that just because the transfer window is around the corner?
“Who knows if they still want to leave? I really hope they remain at the club.
“But, if they do, they need to show the same commitment to help Arsenal to a Champions League spot.”
Could it be that the pair have been challenged to earn their wage demands? Could the relationship between Lacazette and the pair be exciting the trio to stay together?
