Spanish international on his way to the Emirates Stadium.
So there you have it. Football’s world governing body have either made one hell of a mistake, read the last paragraph, or FIFA have just jumped the gun and a deal to bring Santi Cazorla to the Emirates Stadium is done and dusted.
Arsene Wenger has already bagged attacking pair Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud and will hope that a third major signing will help prove to wantaway skipper Robin Van Persie that the North London club do have the ambition, and spending power, to push for major honours.
Cazorla had an impressive first season at Malaga, scoring a career best nine La Liga goals and becoming a focal point of Manuel Pellegrini’s attack as the La Rosaleda side secured their first ever Champions League berth.
The Daily Mirror reported on Friday that Santi Cazorla had already passed his medical and had even met some of his Arsenal team-mates so a deal does indeed appear to have become a reality.
