Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil could be convinced to extend their stays at Arsenal, according to the club's majority shareholder Stan Kroenke.

The attacking duo are out of the contract at the end of the season, and manager Arsene Wenger has hinted at cashing in on them in the January transfer window.

But Kroenke says Sanchez and Ozil are the kind of quality players that Arsenal need to retain to compete with the best in Europe.

"We want to attract top players, keep top players. Those guys [Sanchez and Ozil] are top players," Kroenke told The Mirror.

"I watched them on Sunday [in the 5-2 win at Everton] and they looked really good in black with the red trim. They looked really good and they played really well and 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.
