Arsenal bolster midfield with Spain's Cazorla

07 August 2012, 14:46

London - Arsenal have strengthened their midfield with the acquisition of Spanish playmaker Santi Cazorla from La Liga side Malaga, the Premier League club said on Tuesday.

"Arsenal Football Club is delighted to announce that Spain international Santi Cazorla has joined the Club on a long-term contract," Arsenal said on their website (www.arsenal.com).

Malaga also confirmed the deal, which Spanish and British media reported was worth around 15 million pounds.

Cazorla is Arsenal's third major summer signing, joining Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud who moved from FC Cologne and Montpellier HSC respectively.

The 27-year-old has made 45 appearances for Spain, including brief cameos at Euro 2012.

He spent most of his career at Villarreal before joining Malaga last season when he helped the Andalusian side qualify for the Champions League for the first time.

"I'm so happy to be joining Arsenal," Cazorla said on his new club's website.

"This is a club with great players, a fantastic stadium and huge support," he added.

"The club has one of the best managers in football and their style of play is recognised and admired all over the world."
