Arsenal star Santi Cazorla could struggle to secure for himself a new deal at Arsenal as the versatile midfielder seemingly suffers another injury setback.
The Spain international midfielder has been sidelined for about a year with an Achilles problem and is, as per a report by the Mirror, not expected to come back to training until late on in the current League season.
Santi Cazorla is training again after a successful operation but is still some way not full fitness.
There are worries that this setback could be his final year as a Gunner due to his contract issues.
His contract runs out at the end of the current League season, meaning he won’t have enough time to prove to the Gunners and manager Arsene Wenger that he can still contribute to the team.
The Spaniard sustained the injury while featuring against Ludogorets in the UEFA Champions League last year October.
It looked at the time, like a little problem. He was initially expected to be sidelined for just two to three weeks.
However, several complications arose, and he needed surgery. After that, the problem didn’t heal as anticipated, and he’s had a lot of surgeries since to correct the problem.
