Arsenal & Santi Cazorla

Is Cazorla planning to return to Oviedo this summer?

Now 33, Cazorla is a free agent at the end of the season when his Gunners contract expires.

Santi Cazorla was back on the Arsenal pitch last week. The midfielder at the Emirates ahead of their clash with Atletico Madrid.

Cazorla has not featured for Arsenal since October of last year, when he picked up an achilles injury in a Champions League clash with Ludogorets.

Cazorla has undergone nine operations, at one stage using skin on his achilles from his arm where he had his daughter’s name tattooed.

There was even serious consideration as to whether doctors should amputate Cazorla’s foot after it was infected.

Due to the severity of the infection, doctors told Cazorla that he is lucky to still be able to walk in the garden with his son.

For the record, Arsenal did include Cazorla in their Europa League squad this season.

Arsenal fans would no doubt love to give Cazorla one last send off after his career at the club.

Cazorla joined Arsenal from Malaga back in 2012. At the Gunners he won the FA Cup in 2014 and 2015.
