Anxiety hangs over the Emirates these days as the fate of Arsene Wenger and key players Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil remains undecided.

But rumour has it there's a good reason the luxury-footed German hasn't signed a new contract, and it isn't down to a heated exchange with the Gunnersaurus. Talks have reportedly halted on all three of their contracts until the summer and according to former Chelsea player Michael Ballack, this uncertainty is causing Ozil's hesitation.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Ballack commented that he thought the German international was waiting until an announcement on Wenger's future before he decides about his own.

"It is difficult to say really (if he should stay at Arsenal),' he said. "A player like him, who has played for Real Madrid and now Arsenal and who knows the Premier League and La Liga, he has his own feeling and experience."

"And there are not many clubs where he can go now and who can afford him" he added. I think he needs to feel comfortable with the decision that he makes. But it also depends on what Arsene Wenger does and they have a good relationship and maybe that is why he is waiting a bit."

Whether he means Wenger leaving would convince Mesut to stay or that he wouldn't want to remain at the club without the Frenchman in charge is anyone's guess. With the lack of communication on the managers future it looks more and more likely that Wenger will stay on after the summer, a decision that will surely see Arsenal Fan TV and Piers Morgan spontaneously combust.
