Santi Cazorla hopes to be back playing for Arsenal soon, having stepped up his recovery from ongoing injury problems.
The Spaniard has been out of action with an achilles injury since last October. Thanks to a number of setbacks, no date has been set for his return. There were fears that Cazorla could never play again.
However, he’s now working hard in the gym to return to fitness and recently posted on his Instagram account that he hopes to be back soon.
Arsenal have missed Cazorla and may not have missed out on the Premier League top-four had he been fit last season. Even at 32, he’s still one of the most talented midfielders in squad and would not be easy to replace at all.
It seems Arsenal aren’t seriously pursuing a central midfielder based on the chance that Cazorla could be fit to play a part in next season. Fingers crossed the deep-lying playmaker continues to recover and is back entertaining supporters before too long.
