Santi Cazorla Set To Leave Arsenal After Six Years At The Club

It looks like fan favourite Santi Cazorla will leave Arsenal after six years with the club.

Earlier this year, many feared that Cazorla's 14-year career in professional football may have been over after another injury setback.

But it looks like the little magician is back for good and a move to his former club may be on the horizon.

Former Villarreal midfielder Marcos Senna revealed in an interview that the Spaniard will spend pre-season with the La Liga club.

"I would love to confirm a transfer," said Senna


Cazorla, who hasn't played a competitive game since October last year, had to undergo several operations to fix the achilles tendon injury he sustained during Arsenal's 6-0 win over Ludogorets.

A number of operations meant that the 32-year-old lost eight centimetres from the tendon in his right ankle. Doctors then proceeded to tell the Spaniard that he is lucky to be able to walk in the garden with his son.

As you can see in the image below, Cazorla needed a skin graft from his arm to help fix his left foot as part of his daughter's name is now tattooed on his achilles.

Away from his time on the sidelines, the 32-year-old confirmed that his Arsenal contract was renewed earlier this year but a move is now likely.

Cazorla returned to full Arsenal training on Saturday afternoon, joining the likes of Lacazette and Jack Wilshere in the session.

It may have felt like forever, but it's great to see the Spaniard back in action.

Thoughts on his potential move to Villarreal?
