Arsene Wenger must not sell Santi Cazorla

Published 7 Comments

There's no way Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger should even consider offloading Santi Cazorla this summer despite rumours linking the tricky Spaniard with a move to La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid. 

Cazorla, is without a doubt, one of the most talented footballers in England's elite division - and Arsenal are lucky to have him. Don't get me wrong, any side in world football would be lucky to have him. 

Beautiful player

The reason is simple: he's a joy to watch. Fans of the Gunners would no doubt be happy purchasing a ticket just to watch the playmaker in action. He really is outstanding - what's not to like about his game? 

As well as being a creator and scorer of goals, he's versatile, and is exceptional with both feet. And he may look like a lovely character, but he certainly has a bit about him, and isn't afraid to get stuck in when needed. He's not just a magician; he's also a fighter. 

As well as being every fan's dream, he's also a game changer, and has proved a key man at the Emirates over the last couple of years.

Forget that he's 30 years of age - he's still brilliant, and certainly doesn't seem to be slowing down. Wenger should look to tie him down for at least another three years yet. 

Last season, of course, Cazorla was the man who inspired the Gunners to FA Cup silverware, and this season he has been just as good. Alexis Sanchez has hogged the majority of the headlines in north London, but Cazorla hasn't been very far behind. 

Six goals and seven assists isn't bad going for the Spaniard in England's elite division this term, and it's now up to the Arsenal hierarchy to persuade him to stay on at the club.

There are many players in the same mould as Cazorla who are looked at as luxury players. Cazorla, though, is not one of them.

Arsenal need him 

His persona and style is exactly what Arsenal need. He's everything the club should want, so they must not delay contract negotiations any further. 

He's different to the likes of Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mesut Ozil and Co. Forget Sanchez for a minute, it's Cazorla who really pulls the strings in north London. The technically gifted midfielder can help the club achieve even more silverware over the coming years.

Allowing him to move back to Spain really would be a mistake; he has much more to give, and will prove that over the next few years.  

Arsenal fans: Do you agree? Do you have to keep Cazorla this summer? Have your say in the comments section below!
