Arsenal punters in the Transfer Tavern are concerned Santi Cazorla’s days may well be numbered at the Emirates Stadium.
The Spanish midfielder has established himself as a firm fan favourite in north London since arriving from Malaga in summer 2012, first impressing as an attacking player and then proving himself equally adept at pulling the strings in deep-lying midfield.
But injuries have severely limited his game-time over the last two campaigns, making only 23 Premier League appearances since the beginning of 2015/16, and he’ll now be out of action for the rest of the season after picking up an ankle injury in October.
Already aged 32, Cazorla’s Arsenal career may well be coming to an abrupt end, especially if the Gunners change managers when Arsene Wenger’s contract expires at the end of the season.
With that in mind, our landlord has outlined three perfect successors to the Spain international who Arsenal should target during the next transfer window.
Can any of these three replace Cazorla, Arsenal fans? Have we overlooked an obvious choice? Let us know by commenting below!
