Arsenal set to confirm Santi Cazorla deal

Arsenal are set to confirm the signing of Malaga midfielder Santi Carzola after he passed a medical and joined the club at their pre-season training camp in Germany.

The 27-year-old Spain international will sign a long-term contract for a fee below £15m.

Malaga’s financial problems delayed the move, but it is likely to be announced on Tuesday.


If the BBC reports it then invariably it leads a story being a reality, indeed in the murky world of transfer rumours this particular source tends to err on the side of caution, perhaps too much so, so when they state that Arsenal are to sign Malaga midfielder Santi Cazorla then you can expect this to be the final word on the matter.

Perhaps more surprising is the fact that the reported deal is to come to less than the club record £15m that Arsenal forked out for Andrei Arshavin, if this is the case then Arsene Wenger has pulled off another bargain buy, following on from the relatively inexpensive, in today’s market, signings of Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud.

Perhaps the capture of the Spanish international, with Real Madrid playmaker Nuri Sahin also on the horizon, will convince Robin Van Persie to put pen to paper on a new deal, if he were to do so expect Arsenal fans to be extremely happy about a transfer window that has thus far proved very successful for the North London club.
