A summer of discontent at the Emirates is slowly turning into one of optimism as Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger finally gets the cheque book out to sign some proven, world class players.
The rumours have been rife for some time, with Malaga in increasing financial difficulty, all reports today suggest Santi Cazorla will be an Arsenal player by the end of this week.
Alongside the signings of Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud, plus the likely arrival of Nuri Sahin, Wenger’s transfer dealings in preparation for 2012/2013 appear to look in fine shape, even if captain Robin van Persie departs.
Arguably the best Spaniard in La Liga who doesn’t play for Real Madrid or Barcelona, Cazorla is a regular in Spain’s national team squad and a fee of 22 million euros for the 27-year-old looks good business.
Presuming that most Arsenal fans won’t know much about Santaigo Cazorla González, here is our take on the best goals he has scored.
