Chelsea are reportedly considering a summer move for Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla according to Football Direct News.

It’s a move that would certainly be something of a shock and also one that doesn’t make a great deal of sense given just how many creative midfielders Blues boss Jose Mourinho currently possesses.

Mourinho can currently call upon the likes of Oscar, Eden Hazard, Willian and Mohamed Salah and even felt he could afford to sell Juan Mata to Man United in January. Indeed he can also call upon the services of goal-scoring veteran Frank Lampard if he so chooses so a move for Spanish international Cazorla is confusing to say the least.

The former Malaga man had an outstanding opening campaign for the Gunners but his second season has been something of a damp squib in comparison.

In 2012/13 pint sized playmaker Cazorla racked up a dozen goals in Premier League action alone but thus far this season he’s netted just four in domestic league action and also at the age of 29 the Arsenal man is significantly older than most of the options available to Mourinho making such a move fairly unlikely to say the least.
