UCL qualifiers keen to take exquisite playmaker off Arsenal’s hands

According to the Daily Star, Villarreal are keen on signing Arsenal‘s Santi Cazorla.

The Spain international made his name with the Yellow Submarine, whom he represented between 2003 and 2006, and 2007 and 2011.

Indeed, Cazorla contributed to Villarreal’s magnificent run to the Champions League semi-finals in 2006, where they reached the final four before being eliminated by Arsenal.

He ultimately moved to North London in 2012 after a brief spell with Malaga, and has subsequently won two FA Cups with the Gunners, to go with the two European Championships he claimed as part of Spain’s golden generation.

However, according to the tabloid, Cazorla’s time in the Premier League may soon be coming to an end, with Villarreal monitoring the playmaker and keen on bringing him back to El Madrigal for a third spell.

The prospect of a romantic return to Castellon may also appeal to Cazorla, who would feature in the Champions League next season after Marcelino’s side beat Valencia 2-0 away to secure a spot in the competition’s play-offs for the 2016-17 season.
