Arsene Wenger looks set to snap up his third top quality signing of the summer and this one will break Arsenal’s transfer record when the move to sign Spanish international Santi Cazorla is completed today. The 27 year old has undergone, and seemingly passed, a Gunners medical and will reportedly be officially unveiled by the North London club within the next 24 hours.

Cazorla will join Olivier Giroud and Lukas Podolski as summer arrivals as Arsenal look to improve their Emirates Stadium squad after a seventh successive season without silverware. Wenger will hope that this latest signing will convince skipper Robin Van Persie of the club’s ambitions, and spending power.

The £20m outlay will exceed the previous transfer record fee, that being the £15m spent on Andrei Arshavin three and a half years ago.

Santi Cazorla impressed in his first season at Malaga last term, during which he helped Manuel Pellegrini’s side to secure a maiden Champions League berth.
