Arsenal Get Their Man As Cazorla Jets In
Arsenal are set to complete the signing of Santi Cazorla from Malaga CF.
Cazorla is due at London Colney tomorrow for a medical and is set to sign a €21million deal, and become Arsenal’s third major summer signing, following the arrival of Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud.
Arsene Wenger has been after the Spain international midfielder for the past two seasons, missing out last summer to Malaga, but the Andalusia club’s much publicised financial troubles have provided the opportunity for Arsenal to get their man.
Wenger has been after an attacking midfield player to provide more goals and assists from midfield following last seasons’ dependance upon Robin Van Persie. Arsenal were also interested in Brazilian Ganso and Dortmund’s Mario Goetze, but once Cazorla became available they wasted no time in sealing the deal.
Cazorla will become Arsenal’s record signing.
