Goonersden brings you news from top football news sites from the likes of ESPN, SkySport, Daily Mail, Daily Star and Metro… We also Analyse football, player, transfer and predict Arsenal starting line-up.
Santi Cazorla has revealed he wants to sign a new deal at Arsenal.
The Spaniard’s contract expires next year and he is yet to begin talks over a contract extension. He is being linked with a move to Atletico Madrid but he has revealed his priority is to remain at the Emirates.
The 31-year-old is one of our key players having been left out of the starting xi just once this season. The current situation of his future doesn’t reflect his importance in the team but he is still not interested in a move away.
“Atletico Madrid are an amazing club,” Cazorla told Cadena SER,[via Goal].
“Just have a look at their results, El Cholo [Diego Simeone] is doing great things. It is not easy to reach two Champions League finals and win the league.
“I am happy here. I am trusted by the manager and my team- mates.
“I am feeling important here, and if they’ll offer me a new contract, I’ll sign it because I am very happy with this great club.”
Cazorla has been a key player for us since he became a Gunner in 2011. He joined as a winger/attacking midfielder but ever since he was handed a deeper role, he has become even more important to the team.
Every club’s priority is keeping it’s best player and Carzola is definitely one of ours. He is still very happy at the club and there is no reason why he shouldn’t stay beyond the current campaign.
Arsenal are currently in talks with Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez over extending their contracts and we believe when that is resolved, Carzola would be next in line for a new deal.
