The former Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas has said that he is extremely happy that his former club were able to sign the Spanish midfielder Santi Cazorla, who has joined the Premier league club for a fee believed to be in the region of around £ 17 million.
This marks a major shift in the transfer policy of Arsenal, who have been extremely wary about signing the players who are above the age of 25. The 27-year-old Spanish international, though, will strengthen the team a lot according to the former Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas, who sealed his £ 35 million move to the Spanish club last season.
Even though Cesc Fabregas is not enjoying great first season with Barcelona in terms of the number of trophies, he has said that he is extremely confident that Santi Cazorla will become a great signing for his former club, and he is looking forward to the Arsenal fixtures.
Cesc Fabregas did not manage to win a major trophy in his many seasons with Arsenal. However, he is hoping that the arrival of Santi Cazorla will be enough to change things at the Emirates stadium, which is yet to see the arrival of a new trophy. Due to the financial difficulties faced by the Spanish club Malaga, Arsenal were able to quickly seal the deal for the player.
“I’m so happy to hear that my mate Santi Cazorla is finally a gooner. Top guy, special player. A great signing! Come onnn!” said the former Arsenal midfielder on his Twitter account. The new arsenal signing Santi Cazorla has already said that he received good feedback from Cesc Fabregas regarding his new club Arsenal. Arsenal will be facing a tough fixture in the form of the home tie against Sunderland on the opening day of the season. They will be looking for nothing less than three points from this match.
