Mikel Arteta is convinced Santi Cazorla will make a big impact for the Gunners
Arsenal’s Mikel Arteta has backed his fellow Spaniard Santi Cazorla to shine at the Emirates.
27-year-old Cazorla joined his new teammates on their pre-season training camp in Germany this week and former Everton star Arteta has been impressed by what he’s seen.
“Technically he is very gifted, he can play wide in both positions and through the middle as well,” Arteta told Arsenal’s official website.
“He is tricky and has two good feet - in fact I could not say whether he is right or left-footed. He will bring us good experience and something different. He will be a good addition to the team.
“I am convinced he will make a big impact. The way that we play at Arsenal really suits his qualities and hopefully he will be very successful.”
