Much of the attention in the last few weeks has concerned Ozil's teammate Alexis Sanchez.
Van Persie angered supporters when he swapped Arsenal for United in 2012 and Chile worldwide forward Sanchez is tipped to follow the same path with United playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan set to go the opposite way.
Hodgson, though, insists he will always have the utmost respect for Wenger no matter what happens from here on out.
Wilshere, however, is out of contract in the summer and free to leave the club for nothing.
Arsene Wenger gets a hell of a lot of criticism from Arsenal fans, especially on this website, but the fact remains that he has worked wonders for our club over his 21 years at the helm.
Smith did, however, reveal his concerns as to whether Ozil was only playing well in a bid to secure a new lucrative deal.
Wenger also admitted that the Gunners have yet to agree a wage packet with Wilshere, although they are keen for him to sign a new deal at the club.
Reports suggest the 26 year-old has been offered a £20,000-a-week pay-cut following a string of long-term injuries.
"I would say that our fans today know that Sanchez will not extend his contract, and they have accepted that idea", Wenger said. He loves living in London and has made it clear he wants to stay, ' a source at Arsenal told The Sun.
"After that we have to find a satisfying financial agreement that is good for him and that is what we are trying to do".
