Former Arsenal captain Patrick Vieira is staggered the club has allowed Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez’s contracts to run down.
Vieira says Arsenal need to sort out Sanchez and Ozil’s futures then bring in new players.
“When you look at the Arsenal team in the last few years I think everybody will expect more from Arsenal because of what this football club represents,” Vieira said on Sky Sports.
“There are players who have to make a decision about what they want to do in the future and that is the first thing they need to resolve.
“Then bring in quality players to challenge Manchester City because I believe that Manchester City will be the team to beat in the years coming.”
