Metro have a claim that Arsenal fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are relishing.
The publication have claimed that Gunners star Santi Cazorla has urged his Spanish innational team-mate, Iker Casillas, to make the switch to Arsenal in the summer.
The Real Madrid goalkeeper has been linked with a move away from the Bernabeu in recent months and the fact that he has still not regained the number one spot from Diego Lopez has not made his situation any better.
Casillas remains the number one choice in cup competitions and despite conceding two goals to Borussia Dortmund last night, he performed well, and Arsenal’s star Cazorla has made it very clear that he thinks should Casillas leave Real Madrid, Arsenal should be his number one destination.
Former Malaga star Cazorla claimed: “I’ve told Iker I would like him to join Arsenal. His situation is very difficult but he has to make a decision.
“Lots of clubs want him, including Arsenal.”
As one of our punters claims, Casillas has won enough trophies to be able to move to Arsenal – where he would not exactly be adding silverware to his already vast collection, if the last few years are anything to go by!
Is this a move that makes total sense for Casillas? Is he the older mentor that Wojciech Szczesny requires? Let us know your thoughts below.
