Alexis and Ozil playing for Arsenal exits? In my head they stay until the end of the season.
So desperate is Guardiola to sign his former Barcelonapupil, he is willing to pay more than double City's original offer of £20m.
The pair have been in impressive form for Arsenal in recent weeks.
The likes of Alexis Sanchez, Granit Xhaka and Per Mertesacker attended Whittington Hospital, alongside Arsenal Women's stars Heather O'Reilly and Alex Scott. They have a part to play in that as well.
"Once people see that they are behind you, everybody knows in the stadium that he is a good football player and at the moment he shows that he can fight".
However, Arsenal boss Wenger believes Ozil's form is a by-product of his return to full fitness after an injury-hit start to the 2017-18 Premier League season.
Arsenal go into the European clash on the back of their 3-1 defeat by Manchester United and Wenger will be hoping his side bounce back quickly ahead of their Premier League encounter against Southampton at St Mary's on Sunday.
Both players received a yellow card in the final minutes, as two goals from Jesse Lingard and Antonio Valencia's opener gave Jose Mourinho's side a vital win following Raheem Sterling's late victor for City against West Ham.
