Cech wants Arsenal to tie down Sanchez and Ozil

Petr Cech has urged Arsenal to keep hold of
"exceptional" attacking duo Alexis Sanchez and
Mesut Ozil.
Along with an incessant soundtrack of disquiet
over manager Arsene Wenger's unresolved future,
speculation over Sanchez and Ozil's next move
has persisted during the closing weeks of the
season.
Both players are out of contract in 2018 and
extended terms remain unsigned.
"Alexis has been brilliant, scoring a lot of goals,"
Cech, who is set to line up against former club
Chelsea in the FA Cup final on Saturday, told
reporters.
"They are both exceptional players and obviously
you always want to keep your exceptional players.
"That's the main thing is we need to keep the team
together and try to strengthen it in the areas where
the manager would like to, and then we will be
ready to go again."
Arsenal beat Everton 3-1 on the final day of the
Premier League season but finished outside the top
four for the first time under Wenger.
Cech does not feel this should unduly derail the
Gunners, pointing to the example of Chelsea being
crowned champions despite their title defence in
2015-16 ending with them in 10th position.
"If you have one off year in 20 years, it's not a
problem," he said. "I think the club has a strong
foundation, strong organisation and everything to
be out for one year and come back straight in, like
Chelsea did last season.
"I think it helped them not to be involved [in
Europe] this season, because they could keep all
their energy for the league."
