Wenger Responds To Talk Of Wilshere Leaving Arsenal

The England worldwide went out on loan to Bournemouth last season in a bid to prove his fitness and win back a place in the Arsenal team, but he has played just 48 minutes of Premier League football this season, all from the bench.

"I don't see that changing".

'I'm sure him and his agent would not push it this far if they were going to sign (for Arsenal)'.

Both players' contracts expire at the end of this season; Sanchez came close to joining Manchester City in August and continues to be linked with them, while on Monday the former Arsenal striker Ian Wright said Özil's rumoured move to Manchester United is "a shoo-in".

"For me, they stay until the end of the season".

"Yeah, I rule it [a transfer] out", he said. That's what I decided at the start of the season. But I've said to people before, he can't drag a team up by their laces and make them all play well. That's impossible to answer'. "You know why? Because they've got players who perform, and play well".

Next up for the Gunners is the visit of Huddersfield to the Emirates tomorrow night, and Wenger was snapped putting his squad through their paces today ahead of the match. "Especially in their first season, promoted teams have that kind of fighting spirit that makes them risky to any team they come up against".

Wilshere has been ravaged by injuries over the last three years, but he is fit ahead of Arsenal's meeting with Huddersfield Town on Wednesday. "They have a fighting spirit that makes them unsafe to every team".
