Santi Cazorla wants incredible Arsenal return to link up with ‘best friend’ Mikel Arteta after transfer exit in 2008

FORMER Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla has admitted he would like “to come back” to the club.

The Spanish fan-favourite left the Gunners for Villarreal in 2018 after spending six brilliant seasons at the Emirates Stadium.

The 37-year-old is now with Qatari side Al Sadd and is looking ahead to the next stage in his career.

Cazorla still holds the Gunners close to his heart as he keeps tabs on them and has said that he would be interested in working for the club again.

He told the Daily Mail: “My dream was to play more and more years for [Arsenal].

“Of course, I would like to come back, I have to wait if the club thinks about me, if I can help in something – as a coach or a sporting director.”

Cazorla is close friends with current Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta, who he has revealed helped him settle into life at Arsenal following his move from Malaga in 2012.

He added: “When I arrived at Arsenal, I didn’t speak English – nothing.

“I remember on the first day he [Arteta] was there to welcome me and after that, he was very important every day.

“One of the best friends I have in football.”


So maybe there is a chance for Cazorla, if his friend Arteta can find some space for him at the club.

Cazorla starred for Arsenal during his time at the club as he played 180 times.

During this period he managed to score 29 goals and assist 45, and he helped the club win two FA Cups.
