I cannot find confirmation of this in the Spanish media, but Skysports is reporting that Santi Cazorla will soon be coming to London to take his medical with Arsenal.
The Spanish press do, however, see it as just a matter of time before Cazorla becomes a Gunner. We all know that Arsene Wenger will not release information until a transfer is guaranteed, so we will have to be patient, but everything seems to be going well. The same cannot be said for Malaga Fc, who are having a nightmare at the minute.
The latest player to demand a move away from the Spanish club is 28-year old Frenchman Jeremy Toulalan. The defensive midfielder has told Malaga that the situation is forcing him to seek his fortune elsewhere. Hmm, defensive midfielder, who needs one of those? Apparently there are already offers from clubs around Europe for Toulalan and rumour has it that he could be joined by Salomon Rondon.
You cannot help but feel sorry for the fans of Malaga who have been sold up the river. They are in serious danger of losing out on their first crack at the Champion’s league and losing all their best players at the same time.
I will try to feel very sorry for them, but only after Arsenal have confirmed the signing of Santi. To our Premier league rivals, I say “you better watch out….”
