Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla is hoping Spain team-mate Cesc Fabregas joins him at the Emirates, Sky Sports reports.

Fabregas has been deemed surplus to requirements at Barcelona and is expected to return to the English Premier League this summer.

But amidst reports from Spain that the former Arsenal captain is agreeing a move to Chelsea, Cazorla expressed that he is strongly hoping Fabregas will unite with him in the Gunners midfield.

“I’ve read that he could go to Chelsea but I’d prefer him to come to Arsenal because he’s a great player and they really love him there,” Cazorla said.

“I don’t know what his future is, but I hope that he will be happy and enjoys the team wherever he is.

“I don’t think there’s a big difference between Cesc’s performances in the Premier League and La Liga. He’s adapted perfectly to both leagues.

“His statistics are great at Barcelona but he’s not valued the same as in England. There’s no difference in his numbers.”

Cazorla joined Arsenal in a £17m move from Malaga back in 2012 and has become an integral part of Arsene Wenger’s setup.

The Spaniard will also be part of Spain’s World Cup squad alongside Fabregas this summer, in which they compete Holland, Chile, and Australia to escape Group B.
