Arsenal star willing to make Barcelona move

Arsenal playmaker Santi Cazorla is open to a move to Barcelona, according to reports.

TMW cite speculation in Spanish newspaper AS when claiming that the attacking midfielder is willing to leave north London for the Catalan giants.

The 29-year-old admitted earlier in the week that all players dream of Barcelona and Real Madrid, and that the club from the capital had made contact in the past.

"Both clubs [Barcelona and Real Madrid] are monuments of Spanish football. All players are dreaming about it. I had contact with Madrid a few years ago but a move could not be completed," he told RMC.

Contact could now come from the other giant of Spanish football this summer though, if the reported interest from the Nou Camp is true.

Gerardo Martino isn't short of creative options at the heart of his Barcelona side, but Cazorla has impressed in the Premier League since his arrival in 2012 and could return in search of domestic success after failing to win a significant trophy during his time with Villarreal, Recreativo and Malaga.

Arsenal fans certainly won't want to see the player leave, having seen him make a positive impact at the Emirates Stadium since arriving a year-and-a-half ago.

Whilst Cazorla hasn't helped the Gunners to a trophy, he has become an integral part of the side, with expectations raised further by the signing of Mesut Ozil this summer.

Arsene Wenger must now feel like he has the players at his disposal to make a legitimate challenge for the title, and he won't want to lose one of his Arsenal stars with things finally coming together following eight-and-a-half barren years.
