It is a pretty worrying time to be an Arsenal fan.
Although Arsenal have overcome a shaky start to the season, they still find themselves six points off the top of the Premier League table; having picked up 13 points from seven games.
However, the most worrying thing of all is probably the speculation surrounding the futures of their two star players, Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil.
Both Sanchez and Ozil have been essential for Arsene Wenger's side in recent years, and without them Arsenal will be in an even worse position than they are at the moment.
But with both players demanding huge pay rises to stay at the club, Arsenal have made it clear that they will not be paying them the extortionate amount of money that they are after.
As a result, it has seemed likely that the duo will depart the club on free transfers next summer, which would quite frankly be disastrous for the north London outfit.
However, whereas it looks almost certain that the Chilean will leave the club, Arsenal have been given hope regarding the future of Ozil.
The German's agent, Dr Erkut Sogut, has insisted that talks over a new contract between the two parties are progressing well, and that the former Real Madrid star has no desire to leave the Premier League just yet.
In an interview with Turkish outlet Fanatik, per the Metro, Sogut revealed "Ozil wants to play another 2-3 years in the Premier League.
Talks with Arsenal are ongoing regarding a new deal, what I can say right now is that negotiations are going well."
This is sure to go down well with Arsenal fans, who will be relieved to hear that their most creative player is likely to sign a new contract at the club.
If Alexis Sanchez is also convinced to sign a new contract, and with a few defensive additions in the January transfer window, Arsene Wenger may just have a team at his disposal that is capable of challenging for the Premier League title.
