Arsenal legend Paul Merson believes Spanish playmaker Santi Cazorla might be regretting his move to north London already.
The 27-year-old signed from Malaga in the summer transfer window for an undisclosed fee, and has been an instant hit at the Emirates Stadium this season.
However, the Gunners’ in-different form has seen them struggle both domestically and in Europe, with Saturday’s 1-0 win over QPR keeping Wenger’s side in the race for a Champions League place.
Recent performances have left Merson questioning if Cazorla is enjoying life with Arsenal however, and even posing the question as to how long the 50-cap international will want to stay with the club.
“Santi Cazorla must be already wondering how long he has to stay at Arsenal. They are a one-man team at the moment – and that is a big worry for me,” he wrote in the Daily Star.
“At the start of the season I thought they looked really strong, and they were playing well. It was all looking good. But it’s gone badly wrong over the last few weeks.”
Cazorla has scored two Premier League goals in nine appearances for the club, including the second in a 2-0 win over Liverpool.
Arsenal fans will be hoping they can keep hold of their new star for years to come, but performances will need to improve to show the player he made the right decision to move to the club.
