Arsenal News: Star duo contract update, striker could leave, transfer blocked
Arsene Wenger says he understand's why Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez are holding out for more money.
The pair are out of contract in 2018, demanding wages in excess of £250,00 a week, and Wenger says he is working hard to give them what they want.
“I blame nobody. If you were a player you would try the same. You try to earn as much as you can," he said.
“Honestly my whole life I fight to get the players paid as much as I can. I want as well to be responsible, to pay them the money you can afford to pay.”
