Cazorla deal runs out at the end of the seaon

Arsenal star Santi Cazorla is out of contract at the end of this season and, as things stand, is yet to renew his deal. And though he’s undeniably a key part of Arsene Wenger’s squad at the Emirates, the club is yet to offer him anything.

This lack of movement with regards to his contract has led to reports in the British press linking him with a move to Atlético Madrid. Cazorla himself is quoted as having praised the club and Simeone’s project at the Vicente Calderón, something that has only served to intensify speculation.

FBL-ENG-PR-BURNLEY-ARSENALCazorla was in action this weekend as Arsenal beat Burnley with a stoppage time winner.

Atleti are a great club, says Cazorla

Atlético are a great club. You only have to look at their results. Simeone is doing incredible things there,” he said. “It’s not easy to reach two Champions League finals and to win a league title.”

Any future move for Cazorla would depend on how his contract situation progresses during the season. It’s likely he will renew, but transfer speculation will continue until he does.
