While we're on the subject of Arsenal's future transfer window dealings, it was reported on Tuesday that although the deal for Mesut Ozil has been done, some board members are not in agreement about the 29-year-old's potential. But Monreal told the International Business Times that he is confident they'll stay for the entire campaign.
It had been suggested that the Gunners were ready to cash in on both players in January, rather them let them leave for free, but the Daily Star claims that only one of them will be allowed to leave before the end of the current campaign. Not at all. They are committed to the group and we will see what happens. The situation is clear.
Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil is demanding a huge signing on bonus to join Barcelona.
And though Arsenal are still trying to convince the Germany World Cup victor to sign a new contract, the club have started to prepare for his departure.

Barca will make one last attempt to sign the Brazilian, even though Liverpool remain insistent that they do not want to sell him.
Andreu and Miguelsanz reported Sanllehi has already met in London with Ozil's agent, Erkut Sogut, and that "everything was practically closed", with Segura's green light thought to be the last hurdle in completing a January transfer.
Sanchez is believed to be hopeful of securing a long-awaited move to Manchester City, who nearly wrapped up a £60m deal for him in the summer, whilst Ozil is on Manchester United and Barcelona's radar.
