Key Arsenal duo to sign new deals?

Arsenal legend Alan Smith says he has been told Mesut Ozil is close to signing a new contract with the Gunners.

Much of the attention in the last few weeks has concerned Ozil's teammate Alexis Sanchez.

Manager Arsene Wenger has himself confirmed that a swap deal is on the table for Sanchez involving United's Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

If Smith is correct and German worldwide Ozil does extend his contract, then that is one less issue that the club will need to deal with in the summer.

Asked whether the 29-year-old would still be at the club in February, Wenger replied: "Yes, of course".

I find it quite fantastic that Arsene Wenger is complaining that this transfer window is the worst that Arsenal have had to endure since his arrival, and he explained why in today's press conference.

The England worldwide, now with less than six months to run on his current terms, opened discussions with the Gunners earlier this month.

However, in what will turn out to be wonderful news for Arsenal fans, The Sun are reporting that the duo are in fact close to agreeing a new deal to keep them at club.

"We know what we want", said Wenger. We have to find out if he wants to stay and then after that we have to find satisfying financial agreement with Jack that is good for him.

Both players could be in the side when Arsenal take on Crystal Palace at the Emriates on Saturday.
