Arsenal have had breakthrough in deals for several players in the winter transfer market and he is yet unrelenting as he looks to build a formidable Arsenal team.
The FA have confirmed that Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla has signed a contract extension with the Gunners although the club are yet to announce the deal, according to reports in Metro.
The Spaniard’s current deal expires in the summer, meaning that the midfield maestro was free to sign a pre-contract with clubs outside England this month.
Arsene Wenger recently revealed that the club will activate a one-year option on the Spanish maestro’s contract and it now seems the deal is already signed.
In the FA’s list of ‘Players under Written Contract Registered’ from last month, the midfielder is shown to have been registered meaning that the club seems to have activated the one-year extension on the player.
The 32-year-old who joined the Gunners for £16m in 2012, has been an integral part of the team since moving to the Emirates. He has suffered a serious injury in each of the past two years after not having any serious injury setback previously.
It’s great to have him at the club for one more year and it shouldn’t be a problem extending it further. He is immensely talented and everyone likes him, but to rely on him as we did for the past few years is very risky.
