Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez are very much wanted by Arsenal

Both players are out of contract next summer and conjecture over their futures has been rife for the past six months or so.

The Gunners turned down the chance to sell Sanchez to Manchester City for £60 million on transfer deadline day.

And Ozil has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United, although the player himself denies any deal is on the cards.

Now Kroenke has told the Daily Telegraph: “I watched them on Sunday and they looked really good and played really, really, really well.

“We’d love to keep them.

“It takes two to dance; we’ll keep working to keep our top talent and to attract more talent but some of the guys we’ve got are looking pretty good.”

One man Arsenal are not keen to keep is women’s team boss Pedro Martinez Losa.
