Injuries have adversely affected the season of Arsenal and this season has not been any different with several key stars still out injured.
Arsenal have been hit by the news midfielder Santi Cazorla will not play again this season, reports have claimed
The 32-year-old Spaniard has had a nightmare on the injury front this season and has only been able to make 11 appearances in all competitions.
Cazorla was forced to undergo surgery on his ankle in December, but it was hoped he would make a return to Arsene Wenger’s first-team squad before the season was out.
However reports have now claimed he will not be rushed back and it will be pre-season before he is able to return to full training with the rest of the squad.
Cazorla has continually been linked with a move away from the Emirates Stadium, but the Gunners have triggered a one-year extension in his contract which means he should remain with the club into next season.
