Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla has revealed that the Gunners want to sign Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas. 

As reported by, Cazorla - who has played alongside Casillas for the Spanish national side - has insisted that the Madrid shot-stopper is "curious" about his experience in England. 

Cazorla left La Liga for north London in 2012 and has proved a key player for Arsenal in the past couple of years. 

And now, with Casillas' future in doubt at the Bernabeu, it appears that a move to Arsenal could be on the cards for the 32-year-old.

Speaking to Sport360, the Gunners midfielder said: “I’ve told him [I want him to join Arsenal], but so far he has just been curious about my experience in England.

“His situation is very complicated, but he has to make a decision.

“Lots of clubs want him, including Arsenal, but I think that it would be very difficult to leave Real Madrid because of what the club represents.

“He knows what he has [at Madrid] and what he could find at another club.”

For now though, Cazorla will be focusing on his side's end to the season as Arsenal look to end their trophy drought.

The Gunners take on Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley on Saturday evening and will be desperate to book their place in the final of the competition. 

The north London outfit will also be looking to secure their place in next year's Champions League, with the club currently just one point ahead of fifth placed Everton.
