Arsenal have had plenty of impressive Spaniards over the years, including the likes of Mikel Arteta, Cesc Fabregas and Santi Cazorla. In their prime, those three midfield maestros would work wonders in this current Gunners side, and fans were asked to pick their favourite by AFTV’s Twitter account.
During Fabregas’ time at the club, he played 306 games, racking up 59 goals and 92 assists (stats via Transfermarkt). During his last season, before joining Barcelona, WhoScored noted that he bagged 11 assists in the league and netted four times in six Champions League games, earning him an average performance rating of 8/10 in the competition, according to the site.
Can Arsenal keep hold of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang?
However, despite the undoubted quality he possessed, many fans still can’t get over him moving to Chelsea. In the replies to AFTV’s tweet, some supporters did admit Fabregas was the best Spaniard Arsenal have had, but in a close battle between him and Cazorla, many refused to pick him because of the move to one of their London rivals.

Fam, every person that says Fabregas forgot how he snaked us? Cazorla is the right answer!

Would be Fabregas if me didn’t move to Chelsea, but it’s Cazorla

Cazza. I would have said Fabs, but he left. No hard feelings tho.

I’d say Fabregas and Cazorla are the same but if I had to pick one then Cazorla purely because of the way Fabregas snaked us.

Fabregas was the best, but I cannot ignore that Chelsea spell of his career. So I go with Santi. Amazong footballer and amazing person.
