The Germany global was left out by national boss Joachim Low for their World Cup European Qualifiers against Northern Ireland and Azerbaijan, given extra time to get back to 100 per cent fitness with the Germans already having secured their place in Russian Federation.
Both Ozil and Sanchez could start on the bench at Watford, with the former only having returned to full training this week and the latter just back from worldwide duty with Chile.
"Of course he is important". "They are all players who play in this similar position and it is very interesting because it gives me a lot of opportunities to keep them all focused and refreshed".
Ozil and Sanchez are out of contract at the end of the season and Wenger said: "Once you are in our kind of situation we have envisaged every kind of solution so yes, it's possible". We beat Man City in the FA Cup semi-final and Chelsea in the final and he played as well. We were 33/1 rank outsiders to win the league that year.
'We live in the world where people have opinions and sometimes they are right and sometimes they are not always proven right on the longer period.
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. Tactically, he's one of the best I've worked with.
Asked about Ozil's fitness levels, Wenger replied: "He was not available for Germany, but he is now available yes". I can not tell you what is in his mind.
'I genuinely think he wants to stay, ' Wenger said. "But I am always positive about that".
"If the competition was less ferocious, he is ready to play". At the start, maybe I was a bit nervous to work alongside him. "He is almost back to his best now".
