The long awaited confirmation arrived this morning from Arsenal.com that we have signed Santi Cazorla from Malaga. The fee is not disclosed but it is thought to have been around the £15-17mil mark. I would be quite curious to know whether this transfer has beaten our record of £17mil for Arsharvin.
I’m excited about this signing. Santi Cazorla is an amazing player for Arsenal to buy and he will really strengthen up our midfield. Cazorla is an attacking midfielder who generally plays in the centre but he is versatile and can play on either right or left which is apparently due to the fact he is ambidextrous. He looks very strong and is generally known for his pace.
I’ve watched a few videos just to remind myself how Cazorla plays and I think he is very much a Ray Parlour type of player and we haven’t had that for ages. I think when playing with Arteta, Song, The Ox and even Wilshere he will definitely enable our midfield to be stronger. He has said how happy he is to be joining Arsenal
“I’m so happy to be joining Arsenal, it is a great club with great players, a fantastic stadium and huge support, the club has one of the best managers in football and their style of play is recognised and admired all over the world”
I think every Gooner in the world is happy that we have completed the signing of Cazorla. I can’t wait to see him play this season. Welcome to Arsenal Santi Cazorla!
