Cazorla opens up on new contract saga, admits he could leave Arsenal next summer

Santi Cazorla has admitted that he would want to stay with Arsenal beyond his current contract but has also confirmed that the club have not approached him with a new deal.

The 31-year-old midfield star is out of contract next summer. The Spain star is a firm fan favourite at the Emirates and wants to stick around for longer.

Speaking on the contract saga, Cazorla confirmed: “I hope I can stay here and continue to play,” Spaniard told Spanish radio station Cadena Ser.

“I am happy here. What a player wants is to play and to feel important.

“Fortunately, since I arrived at Arsenal, I’ve had the confidence of the coach and of my teammates.

“I’ve played a lot of minutes. In the end, that is what every player wants.”

Despite admitting his desires to stay at Emirates, Cazorla understands that Arsenal are going through a transition which could see younger players replace him in coming time.

Further clarity on the matter is expected to be made at the end of current season.
