Santi Cazorla wants Arsenal to sign Iker Casillas - round-up

Published Add your comment

Arsenal star Santi Cazorla has given fans reasons to be hopeful this summer after admitting he would love to see Iker Casillas join the club this summer.

The Real Madrid goalkeeper has been linked with an exit from the Bernabeu this summer. 

It seems if Carlo Ancelotti decides to move for Manchester United shot stopper David de Gea, Casillas will leave in search of first-team football.

Should that situation occur, it appears the Gunners are in pole position to sign him. That is something Cazorla is very excited about.

However, the diminutive playmaker also acknowledged that the rumours are likely to be untrue as he understands Casillas is very happy in the Spanish capital.

A pleasurable signing

"These rumours appeared when Iker suffered a delicate situation and speculation arose that he could come to Arsenal," Cazorla told Spanish paper Marca.

"It would be a pleasure to have him here, but I don’t see him leaving Madrid.

“He has said many times that his wish is to remain in Madrid."

Another goalkeeper story

While Cazorla would love to see Casillas arrive at the Emirates, it appears Arsene Wenger would prefer his new goalkeeper to come from a closer source.

Petr Cech has also been tipped to leave his current club in the summer after falling behind Thibaut Courtois in the pecking order.

Arsenal are ready to make a move to sign him, but are worried Jose Mourinho will attempt to block the move. It's understandable, as Arsenal will probably be the main challengers to their Premier League title next season.

As a result, Wenger has reportedly told Cech to force his way to north London where a three-year deal worth £120,000-a-week will be waiting.

The Sterling effect

We have all heard that Raheem Sterling doesn't want to sign a new contract with Liverpool unless they serious up their offer. While he doesn't want us to think of him as a money-grabbing kid, that is exactly what most of us do.

But that negativity has not stopped Sterling's mate Jordan Ibe from joining the money-grabbing club. The 19-year-old is reportedly stalling on a new contract at Anfield because he is not happy with the £25,000-a-week on offer.

He wants £50,000-a-week and, unsurprisingly, Brendan Rodgers doesn't want to give it to him. Now Arsenal are tracking the talks and could make a bid if the stalemate continues.
