Santi Cazorla rejects Arsenal exit rumours

Published 2 Comments

Arsenal playmaker Santi Cazorla has dismissed speculation that Atletico Madrid tried to sign him in the transfer window.

The Spanish international was linked with a return to his homeland this summer, with Atletico reportedly keen on the former Malaga star.

Enrique Cerezo, the Atletico Madrid club president, has played down the link however, and insisted that an offer was not made.

And, Cazorla has backed up the claims of Cerezo, revealing that he never took interest in the claims, and was calm about the situation.

"No because there was never anything in that," he told Marca.

"Like Cerezo said, there was no offer made and I was always calm about it."

Cazorla only signed for Arsenal in the summer of 2012, with Arsene Wenger bringing the player to England for an undisclosed fee.

And, the 28-year-old has been a revelation for the Gunners, with his style of play quickly winning over the fans at the Emirates Stadium.

Despite the arrival of Mesut Ozil in north London, the player’s exit was never likely to happen, and Arsenal fans will now look forward to seeing the duo in action together - potentially against Sunderland on Saturday.
