Monreal: Arsenal privileged to have Ozil and Sanchez.

Arsenal are delighted to have Sanchez and Ozil.

It's a "privilege" to play alongside Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil at Arsenal, says full-back Nacho Monreal.

Contract extensions for Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil have been all over the back pages this week, with reports claiming both players are seeking parity with the highest-paid players in the Premier League.

"Both Alexis and Mesut have been around in football for a long time now," Monreal Arsenal's official website.

"Everybody knows what they can do and I have to say, we are privileged to have them in the team. I think all of our rivals, when they are preparing to face us, they really have to spend a bit more time preparing for those two.

"Mesut, for example, he is the player that threads the play together.

"And Alexis is a really complete footballer. He is very good in the air despite the fact he is not the tallest. He has a great shot on him, his positioning is very good. He chips in with the goals and really, he has everything.

"What I would say is that it is his ambition that makes him such a great player. He just wants more at all times and for example, if he gets subbed off when we are winning 3-0, he is not happy because he wants more, he wants to play more and he wants to keep improving."
