Arsenal’s season is gradually capitulating as a result of the injury to Santi Cazorla, who has been the playmaker and pivot of Arsenal thus far.
According to report, the diminutive star who has been out of action since Oct 19 will travel to Sweden to undergo a surgery next week and he is expected to be on the sidelines for at least three months.
It had been hoped the playmaker, who scored twice during the Gunners’ impressive start to the new campaign, would be able to recover without going under the knife.
But Arsenal have now revealed on the club’s website that we will be without him until next year.
In a statement, Arsenal said: “We expect Santi’s full recovery to take approximately three months.
“Everyone at the club will be working hard with Santi to make sure he’s back on the pitch as soon as possible.”
Cazorla made 11 appearances for Arsenal before his untimely injury blow.
And the Gunners have missed the midfield maestro in recent weeks.
Arsene Wenger’s side claimed seven consecutive victories before Cazorla’s injury but have won just four from nine matches since.
