Santi Cazorla confirms Arsenal’s interest in Samuel Chukwueze

Former Arsenal playmaker, Santi Cazorla, has uncovered he has gotten calls from people at the club, getting some information about two of his present team-mates.

Santi Cazorla left the Gunners following six years and came back to Villarreal in 2018.

The Spaniard plays with defender, Pau Torres and winger, Samuel Chukwueze, who are both attracting interest from top clubs.

Torres got a first senior Spain call-up a year ago, while Chukwueze who plays for the Super Eagles, has been the subject of an offer from Liverpool.

Notwithstanding, Arsenal are presently in the running for the player.

In a meeting with Marca, when inquired as to whether he gets numerous calls about Chukwueze or Pau, Cazorla stated: “Truly, friends from Arsenal especially.

“They ask me about them and think they can make the jump to the Premiership tomorrow.

“It’s good that great teams are interested in young players from Villarreal, but for the moment I tell them to leave them alone here.

“They still have to take steps forward. They both have a great personality, and their feet are on the ground.

“In Pau’s (Torres) case he hears steady discuss City or Barcelona, however he knows that he needs to continue developing as a player and that in the future we will see where he can go.”
