Santi Cazorla has taken to Twitter to hit back at suggestions that he could be out for the rest of the season.
Arsene Wenger revealed yesterday that the Spanish midfielder has suffered an Achilles problem while recuperating from knee surgery and refused to put a date on his return.
Eager to clarify the situation the 31-year-old, who hasn’t played for Arsenal since the November trip to Norwich, made clear that he’s still aiming to make the final two months of the season.
Surprised by the piece of news appeared in press, deadlines are going as planned. I will be ready on 1st April. #workinghard

It’s certainly a more positive spin on what looked to be a depressing turn of events. No doubt Santi is desperate to get back on the pitch, all the more so with Euro 2016 – arguably his last chance to participate in a major international tournament – on the horizon.
Let’s hope we’ve something to celebrate on April Fool’s Day.
