Arsenal star would love to see Iniesta join the club

Arsenal playmaker Santi Cazorla has opted to select Barcelona icon Andres Iniesta as the fellow Spaniard he would most like to join him at the Emirates Stadium.

Given that Spain are the reigning world and European champions and boast arguably the best squad in the history of the international game, Cazorla was spoiled for choice. However, the former Malaga star was very clear in his response to such an intriguing query.

"Andres Iniesta, there's no player like him," he told Sport360 in an interview that was cited by The Daily Express after being asked which of his La Roja teammates he would like to see move to North London.

Given that 29-year-old Iniesta - who was surprisingly substituted by manager Gerardo Martino on Wednesday night as Barcelona exited the Champions League at the quarter-final stage after a 2-1 aggregate defeat to domestic rivals Atletico Madrid - has represented the La Liga giants for his entire senior career to date, the chances of him moving to Arsenal - or any other club, for that matter- seem incredibly slim.

However, that doesn't mean that fans can't dream. Although Arsenal are stocked with high-quality midfielders, there is simply no doubt that the wonderfully-gifted Iniesta would instantly assume the mantle as the Gunners' best player in the unlikely event that he did secure a transfer to the Premier League.

Indeed, while Cazorla was asked to ponder such an arrival, speculation has grown over recent days as to just whether he might depart the Emirates himself given the club's continued lack of championship pedigree.

Arsenal fans, what do you make of Cazorla's comments? Can you realistically ever seen someone of Iniesta's caliber moving to the club?
