Arsenal defenders Rob Holding and Nacho Monreal go head-to-head on National Basketball Association 2K18.

While we're on the subject of Arsenal's future transfer window dealings, it was reported on Tuesday that although the deal for Mesut Ozil has been done, some board members are not in agreement about the 29-year-old's potential.

Sanchez and Ozil could both leave for nothing next July but team-mate Monreal insists the pair are still committed to the club.

"Yes, the feeling is that they will continue".

"At no time have we talked about the possibility of them leaving. Not at all", Monreal was quoted as saying. It does not depend on me.

Arsenal have made it clear they want him to stay, and are prepared to make him the highest paid player at the club if he decides to sign a new deal.

If not they are prepared to wait until the end of the season to get their man - although Manchester City, Liverpool and Bayern Munich have also shown interest.

"I think if Schalke had no chance to keep him I would be the first to know that", he told SportBild.

But Segura, who is now senior to Fernandez, wants to look at other options and Ozil's contract situation has made him the No. 1 alternative.

Sanchez is believed to be hopeful of securing a long-awaited move to Manchester City, who nearly wrapped up a £60m deal for him in the summer, whilst Ozil is on Manchester United and Barcelona's radar. Wenger then opened the door for a January sale last month when he admitted he couldn't rule it out. "It's possible", he said.
