It's a possibility - Dani Alves talks up PSG switch for Sanchez

Alexis Sanchez is in the same situation as Ozil with his contract also expiring in the summer.

When asked if Arsenal can allow Sanchez and Ozil leave in Janaury, Wenger said: "In our situation, we have envisaged every solution".

Wenger did brush off suggestions that Sanchez's mental fatigue would be a drawn out issue, and insists the attacker will be fully focused on Arsenal's success.

"I always said that the fact that we didn't find an agreement past year doesn't mean that the player will necessarily leave - because both players look happy here", he said. I hope he'll be happy, wherever he goes.

Sanchez will be dealing with both fatigue and the disappointment of missing out on next summer's tournament in Russian Federation, and Wenger said he will have to gauge the player's physical and mental state before deciding whether to play him at Watford.

Alves and Sanchez were on opposite sides in Sao Paulo on Tuesday night (10 October) as a 3-0 win for already-qualified Brazil over Chile - plus a late equaliser from Peru's Paolo Guerrero against Colombia - saw the reigning Copa America champions miss out on qualification for their third successive World Cup.

The Frenchman told reporters: "I will have to speak to him". We reported yesterday that Manchester City were confident of signing Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez but it seems that they're not the only team.

'It was very physical and mentally I will have to assess the situation'.

Arsene Wenger has cast doubt over whether Alexis Sanchez will be involved for their Premier League clash against Watford this weekend, after the Chile global received "special treatment" on worldwide duty.

He's courted by many teams.
