The Chilean failed to secure himself a move away from the Emirates Stadium over the summer, with the deadline passing without the Gunners cashing in on a player in the final year of his contract. With the Frenchman's own contract situation undecided beyond 2019 as well, negotiations with Welbeck and Ramsey may prove far from straightforward.
While hoping that such talks will progress positively, Wenger concedes that more players are going to follow the lead of Ozil and Sanchez as transfer fees continue to rise.
The clubs want too much for normal players, because they say if one player is worth £200million, then this player is worth £50m. Gibbs was on the final-year of his contract and was not offered a new deal and Wenger confirmed that it was one of the reasons for his departure this summer.
'You will be in a position where you either extend for money you can not afford or you go into the final year of their contract.
"Danny Welbeck has a groin injury".
European clubs went berserk in the 2017 transfer window, with Premier League sides alone accounting for £1.4 billion in business and Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger feels something has got to give soon. The Baggies will look to frustrate Arsenal and pick off set-plays where they can.
Losing someone like Ramsey in similar style would be a massive blow for the Gunners.
The 27-year-old will head back to the Emirates Stadium on Monday with his new club and Wenger admits it will be odd to not see him in red and white.
"It will be odd to see him in a different shirt because he is a player who has been educated here from a very young age".
Unrest among the Gunners faithful was at its peak just before the worldwide break as an unsatisfactory transfer window was compounded by a 4-0 humiliation at old rivals Liverpool.
"Sanchez has been distracted at Arsenal for the last six months". But the forward is regularly let down by a couple of key issues: his finishing and, most significantly, his fitness.
