Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil’s performances for Arsenal over recent weeks lead Arsene Wenger to believe they want to stay at the club.
The attacking duo are out of contract next year and are yet to sign reportedly lucrative terms to remain at Emirates Stadium.
“They don’t behave like players who are disinterested in the future of the club,” Wenger told a pre-match news conference as he rejected the suggestion that failing to qualify for the Champions League would be a decisive factor in either player’s future.
He added: “No, because they are part of the results as well, like I am. First of all they re under contract and, secondly, they behave like they want to be at the club.
“I don’t question the focus or determination because they turn up with strong performances.”
