Santi Cazorla has insisted he is happy at the Emirates Stadium and claims top signings like Alexis Sanchez can help Arsenal challenge for the Premier League trophy, according to ESPN.
The arrival of Sanchez means an increased competition for places but Sanchez told the Arsenal website: "Of course. I am happy here. I want to play for Arsenal for more years."
Cazorla had previously dropped a huge hint that he may move to Atletico Madrid after admitting that he had spoken to Spain team-mates Koke and Juanfran about the Spanish League winners. It appears Cazorla is now happy to stay at the north London side and will be looking to improve on his sides fourth placed finish next season.
Cazorla is thrilled to have the opportunity to link up with new signing Sanchez and told the club website: "He is a very good player. He is a great signing for the club. I am very happy for him and the club."
"It is important because the other teams for example Chelsea and Manchester City sign good players. Arsenal need to sign players like Alexis for a stronger team. I am happy for Alexis," he said.
Cazorla saw up close Sanchez's ability as Spain suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Chile at this summer's World Cup.
But that is all in the past as Cazorla claimed: "I will help him in the dressing room and with team-mates."
The 29-year-old Spaniard signed for Arsene Wenger's side in the summer of 2012 for £15million and has been a key part of the Frenchman's side ever since. Last season Cazorla made 31 appearances for Arsenal and scored four goals as he played a crucial part in his sides race for fourth place and FA Cup success.
Cazorla registered an average pass accuracy of 86% in the 2013/2014 season and created 66 chances for his team mates.
If he can recreate this form next season and form a link with new-boy Sanchez, Arsene Wenger and Arsenal may be onto a winning formula.
Arsenal secured the signing of Sanchez last week in a £35million deal with Barcelona. The 25-year-old Chilean forward scored an impressive 19 goals in La Liga last season from just 66 shots on goal and in just 27 starts.
Sanchez has played second fiddle to the likes of Lionel Messi and Neymar at Barcelona but impressed at the World Cup where he was the main for Chile.
With the ability to play anywhere across the front line Sanchez will be looking forward to starring in an Arsenal shirt and will be hoping to push Wenger's side beyond a fourth place finish.
