For the Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern, Santi Cazorla has long been established as one of their favourites.
The little magician is often forgotten behind the likes of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez, though remains a crucial player at the Emirates.
Having joined the Gunners back in 2012, the two-time European Championship winner recently revealed he’s yet to be offered a new deal by the Gunners.
Following a recent stat revealed by Opta, the Emirates faithful propping up the bar have only been further fueled in begging top brass to extend his deal.

According to the stat supremos, only international teammate David Silva has created more assists in the Premier League since Cazorla’s arrival on these shores four years ago.
Amazingly, the ex-Malaga man has laid on 35 goals for his teammates in that time, despite often playing in a deeper midfield role to accommodate Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.
So, as you can well imagine, the Gunners’ faithful simply don’t want him to go.
