Wenger's men travel to Watford on Sunday after the global break.

The 10-point haul from four games, with the only ones dropped at champions Chelsea, has lifted the Gunners up to fifth in the table, level with the Blues, who now occupy the final Champions League spot, and six points behind league leaders Manchester City.

To make matters worse, the goal which say Peru equalise and earn themselves a spot in the top five was from an indirect free-kick, which only stood because goalkeeper and Arsenal team-mate David Ospina made contact with the ball before entering the net.

After hearing what his former player had to say, Wenger didn't seem to take the comments with a pinch of salt, instead stating in his press conference that he isn't interested.

Ozil has recovered from his knee injury and is expected to feature at Vicarage Road on Saturday.

'Of course, we would be happy to keep them, but I think it is important not to talk about the contracts, ' Kolasinac told the Evening Standard.

'In Chile it's Sanchez. "Yesterday afternoon I watched the whole Brazil v Chile game to see how hard the game was".

"It's a massive game, sure, tough game against a very good team", said Watford boss Marco Silva. "I hope the situation can be turned around".

Centre-back Shkodran Mustafi also endured a miserable global break, the Germany worldwide suffering a thigh injury against Azerbaijan that will sideline him for four to six weeks.

The left-back has become a fan favourite since arriving on a free transfer from Schalke, playing in all but one of their Premier League games so far and scoring in the 3-1 Europa League win over Koln.

"I believe that Jack at the moment is in the best form I've seen him in for a long time", Wenger said.

La Roja were sat in third place going into the final group stage match in qualifying, and their worst nightmare came true on the night. He trained on his own and the first signs are positive, so we chose to give him a test tomorrow.
