If Arsenal must remain as a big club and title contenders, then Arsene Wenger do everything within his powers to keep his star players.
Time was when Arsenal were unable to match the wage demands of certain big players. However, Arsene Wenger has insisted that Arsenal can meet the financial needs of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.
The pair remain in talks with the Gunners over new contracts, with their current deals set to expire in 2018
Ozil is currently Arsenal’s top earner with a weekly salary of £140,000, while Sanchez is just below that on £130,000 a week.
Reports have indicated that they want they pay increased to £384k-a-week and Wenger’s claim means Arsenal can match their demand.
‘We can give financial satisfaction to players at this club,’ the Frenchman insisted on Friday.
‘Before the gap was too big to keep our players, we could not compete, we had to sell our players.’
