Cazorla reveals phone calls from Arsenal over Villarreal duo

Santi Cazorla has confirmed that people at Arsenal have contacted him over their interest in Villarreal duo Pau Torres and Samuel Chukwueze.

After a memorable six years at the Emirates, albeit plagued by injuries, Cazorla returned to Villarreal in 2018.

Arsenal have been linked with Torres and Chukwueze recently and Cazorla claims he has had contact from his “friends” at Arsenal asking about the pair, although there is understood to be interest from elsewhere.

“Yes, friends from Arsenal especially,” Cazorla told Marca when asked whether he received many calls from English clubs about Chukwueze or Pau.

“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 constant talk of City or Barcelona, but he is aware that he has to keep growing as a player and that in the future we will see where he can go.”
