Goal revealed last week that Alexis has made it clear to the Arsenal board that he has no intention of signing a new deal, with Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain the main candidates to snap him up.Ozil, meanwhile, is attracting interest from Manchester United and Barcelona, but he remains happy in north London and his agent, Erkut Sogut, revealed on Wednesday that talks over a contract extension at Arsenal are heading in a “positive” direction.However, Wenger says it remains possible that both players could leave in the winter transfer window.Speaking ahead of Arsenal’s Premier League clash against Watford on Saturday, he said: “In our situation, we have envisaged every solution. It is possible.”When asked specifically about Ozil’s future at the club, the Frenchman replied: “It is my understanding [that he wants to stay].“I hope the situation can be turned around. At the moment, we are not close enough to announce anything.”Wenger also revealed that he will speak with Alexis ahead of his side’s trip to Watford following the forward’s participation in Chile’s 3-0 defeat against Brazil in midweek.Arsenal travel to Watford on the back of a seven-game unbeaten run in all competitions, whereas the Hornets are unbeaten in their last two league fixtures.
Alfonso Soriano, who was traded to New York from the Chicago Cubs last month, is proving to be a great acquisition for the Yankees.The outfielder has had 18 RBIs in the last four games, which tied the MLB record for most RBIs in a four-game span. In his recent game against the Boston Red Sox, Soriano hit three hits and drove in four more runs, which added to his RBI total to lead the Yankees over the Red Sox 10-3.“Here we go again,” Soriano said to the media after the game. “I think the motivation [is] going back to the Yankees, trying to help the team win.”Soriano is leading the charge as the Yankees have won the last five out of six games. The recent wins put the Yankees 7½ games back in the division and 5½ back in the AL wild-card race.“You’re looking at a powerful right-handed hitter in the middle of the lineup who caught fire since he came over,” Red Sox manager John Farrell said. “It’s had an enormous [impact] on their offense.”
