Arsene Wenger dismisses Santi Cazorla transfer link

Published 3 Comments

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has insisted that there's nothing to be worried about over the future of key man Santi Cazorola. 

The Spanish playmaker has been heavily linked with a move to La Liga giants Atletico Madrid in recent time, however the Gunners chief has revealed that the club have not been approached over the player's services. 

Consistent Cazorla

Speaking in his press conference ahead of the club's visit to Selhurst Park to take on Crystal Palace tomorrow, Wenger has in fact suggested that the midfield ace has been the club's most consistent player in recent time.

It's certainly not surprising that the Gunners chief wants to keep the talented Spanish international at the Emirates, but it remains to be seen as to whether Atletico step up their interest in the player in the near future. 

It certainly appears, though, that Wenger is determined to keep Cazorla in north London, as the club go in search of long term success.

There's no doubt about it, Cazorla, alongside summer recruit Alexis Sanchez, has been the club's standout player this term, but it remains to be seen as to whether the club go about offering him a new long term deal. 

In fact, with the player set to run out of contract at the end of next season, Gunners fans will no doubt be hoping that the club do tie him down to a new deal despite him being 30 years of age.

Santi must stay 

And Arsenal really must do everything they can to keep Cazorla at the Emirates. He really is a key man for the club, and has proved his credentials on a consistent basis over a long period of time for the club. 

Having struck six goals and racked up seven assists in England's elite division throughout the course of the campaign so far, the playmaker has certainly enjoyed a fine period for the Gunners. 

A magician on the pitch, Cazorla's class has helped him become a fans' favourite in north London, but he will surely continue to star at the club for a couple of years yet. Wenger must now act, and hand him the new deal that he deserves.
