Arsenal have been boosted by the news that one of the club’s most important players is set to resist the temptation of moving elsewhere.
Following an impressive start to the season which has seen the Gunners win five straight games in the Premier League, the only concern for Arsene Wenger is now the long-term future of his key players.
Santi Cazorla, whose contract at the club expires in summer of 2017, has been linked with a move back to Spain with Atletico Madrird supposedly interested in his services.
However, the 31-year-old insists he will not be jumping ship and intends to remain at the Emirates stadium by agreeing a new deal at the club.
“Atletico Madrid are an amazing club”, Cazorla told Cadena Ser. “Just have a look at their results, El Cholo is doing great things. It is not easy to reach two Champions League finals and win the league.
“[But] I am happy here. I am trusted by the manager and my teammates. I am feeling important here and if they’ll offer me a new contract I’ll sign it because I am very happy with this great club.”
