Midfielder delivers optimistic injury update as Arsenal await his return

Santi Cazorla is a fan favourite amongst the Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern…

The Spaniard has enjoyed a fantastic tenure in London for the Gunners, though it has been at a standstill for the last year or so.

He suffered an injury that ruled him out of much of the 2016/17 campaign, and that lay-off has extended into this season too, with the Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern still unsure when he will return.

Indeed, the club have been quiet on the matter too, and so the secrecy around his situation is not helping matters.

Fortunately, the Spaniard himself has recently posted an update on his personal Instagram page, and it appears as though he is returning to fitness, albeit very slowly.

He’s posted a video on the site showing him performing an exercise as he looks to get back into action, and whilst it’s a small step, it is, at the very least, a significant one.

Whilst this does not suggest that a return is imminent, or that it will come anytime soon, it does hint that the Spaniard is on the road to recovery. It’s been a long journey for him, but hopefully, he’s over the bumps and on the clear path to a return.

After all, Arsenal could really use him.

Landlord’s Verdict

Santi Cazorla has been fantastic in the Premier League since he joined, and Arsenal have really missed him.

A fantastic passer and assist maker, the Spaniard is one of Europe’s best on his day, and Arsenal are far worse off without him.

Still, a return is seemingly on the horizon, and whilst it won’t be anytime soon, the fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate for it to come.
