Arsene Wenger: 'Talks still ongoing with Jack Wilshere'

Ozil is out of contract at Arsenal at the end of this season and has been linked with an exit.

Arsenal look set to lose Alexis Sanchez this month, with the Chile star reportedly on his way to Manchester United.

And Wenger, running the risk of having his house burned down if he said otherwise, insisted that Ozil would not be another January casualty.

Smith believes Sanchez departing Arsenal leaves Ozil in a good position when it comes to negotiating a new deal with the club, but says he would like to see the World Cup victor perform on a more consistent basis.

Asked if the playmaker will still be an Arsenal player after the transfer window closes, Wenger replied: "In February?" It seems he wasn't exactly impressed with Arsene Wenger after the move went through.

The Frenchman did confirm Ozil "should be back" for Saturday's game at home to Crystal Palace after a knee injury has kept him out since Arsenal's 2-2 draw at home to Chelsea.

Last week, the Myanmar Army acknowledged extrajudicial killings of Rohingyas, who were buried in a common grave in September. The head of Myanmar's delegation told NHK it handed out a list of about 700 Rohingya who it says are qualified to go home.

If Smith is correct and German global Ozil does extend his contract, then that is one less issue that the club will need to deal with in the summer.

"We know what we want". The Bordeaux president has told L'Equipe in France that things are clear with his agents, they say his contract has not been extended in the summer just to give him away this winter. "That's what we're trying to do".

Comparing Wenger to Mourinho, who the Togolese played for on loan at Real Madrid in 2011, Adebayor said: "Mourinho is the one of the managers I loved and will always love".

"After that, I think I can deal with the kind of stress it creates and the experience I have helps me to focus on what is important, at the right moment".

"It occupies you on the pitch and off the pitch and at night as well because you are very busy".
