Arsene Wenger’s side have been in talks with the duo for over 12 months over signing extensions but a variety of factors have meant discussions are still ongoing.

Ozil, 27, was keen to focus on Euro 2016 before discussing a new deal and there’s under two years to run on his current contract in north London.

Sanchez’s contract expires in 2019 but the Gunners had been keen to tie the 27-year-old down to fresh terms.

According to the Times, the Gunners offered the pair new deals worth around £180,000-a-week in talks last year.

That offer represented a big increase on the duo’s existing deals but the attackers now want around £70,000-a-week more on top of that offer to commit their futures to the club.

Giving in to the duo’s demands would cost the Gunners around £36m more than they had budgeted for in their original plans but the club remain keen to tie the two down to fresh deals.
