Arsenal’s £15million man wanted by La Liga giants

Atletico Madrid are leading the chase to sign Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla, according to the Daily Star.

Cazorla, who was unable to prevent Arsenal succumbing to a 3-2 defeat against Stoke City yesterday despite netting from the penalty spot, is no longer a guaranteed starter for Arsene Wenger’s side despite the Spanish international being named the Gunners’ ‘Player of the Season’ in his debut campaign in north London.

The former Malaga ace, who joined from the La Liga club for in and around £15million, will be in the last year of his contract at the end of the current campaign, and, with the attacking midfielder turning 30 before the end of the year, Arsene Wenger may well cash in on Diego Simeone’s interest to bring Cazorla back to La Liga. Moreover, Santi my well fancy another challenge with competition from the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Mesut Ozil meaning game time may well be hard to come by.
