Cazorla Suffers Another Injury Setback, May Not Play For Arsenal Again...

Here we go again did i hear you say, Arsenal’s new Abou Diaby has provided us with more bad news on his fitness. Santi Cazorla has revealed that he will be out on the sidelines for longer than expected.  Santi Cazorla would be missing the rest of the 2016/17 season, things have only seemingly got worse for the Spaniard.

His close control, varied pass selection and exceptional vision allow Arsenal to travel up the pitch at lightning speed, without him they’re always sluggish. Ever since his absence, creative duties have been placed on the shoulders of Mesut Özil both in the middle and final third, it’s too much.
Possible replacement for the former Malaga star could come in the form of;
