Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain hailed Santi Cazorla

Arsenal star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is excited by the prospect of Santi Cazorla at the Gunners.

The Spaniard made his move to the Emirates from Malaga and starred as the north Londoners drew with Sunderland.

“He is a brilliant player,” he said.

“He is a typical Spanish player - right foot, left foot, technically brilliant.

“He is a clever player. He is not the most physical, he is only short. But I think that highlights how good he must be in his head and with his feet.

“From what I have seen so far, he is a massive asset for the club and he is a really good lad as well, which always helps.

“I think he is going to do really well for us.”
