According to Metro, Santi Cazorla has told the Gunners that he wants out as he looks towards a move back home to La Liga.
Apparently the Spanish international midfielder has told family and friends that he craves a return to Spain and had admitted that he would love a move to Champions League finalists Atletico Madrid.
The La Liga winners have been long-term admirers of Cazorla and now have the cash to splash following Diego Costa’s impending move to Chelsea.
That deal means they now have £32 million to spend and Los Colcohoneros boss Diego Simeone could spend a large chunk of that on bringing the 29-year-old former Villarreal and Malaga star to the club.
Arsenal fans. Santi Cazorla is easily replaceable, isn’t he? Plus at the age of 29 it’s time to sell, isn’t it? Let us know your thoughts below.
