Arsenal have played down a report in the Daily Express that Santi Cazorla could be ruled out until next April but admit the midfielder is not working towards a fixed return date at the moment.
Arsenal opted to trigger a clause in Cazorla’s contract that keeps him at the Emirates for a final year and a club representative, contacted by the Evening Standard, still believes the Spaniard will feature for the first team this season. That’s about all they had to say on what is a very sad state of affairs for all involved.
Cazorla signed for the Gunners from Malaga in 2012 for a fee in the region of £15 million. One of Arsene Wenger’s most creative players he’s gone on to score 29 goals and make 45 assists in 180 appearances for the club.
We keep our fingers crossed that Santi can make a full recovery soon, he’s been sorely missed.
