Santi Cazorla: Arsene Wenger delivers latest update

Wenger admits he’d hoped to have Cazorla back by January but that that is no longer realistic, meaning he’ll have to rely on the unconvincing partnership of Granit Xhaka and Aaron Ramsey in midfield for a bit longer.

Arsene Wenger has delivered yet another disappointing news concerning Santi Cazorla injury as the Spain international's return to action is delayed once again.

According to the Daily Mirror, the Arsenal midfielder has now had nine ankle operations in the last 14 months, with Wenger admitting he's 'very sad' at the news.

The Spaniard has already been out for over a year and his future must be in tough doubt give that's about to turn 33 and will be seriously lacking in match fitness at this stage.

‘I sent him a message because he had surgery and wished him well. He (Cazorla) answered “I have to start again from zero”,’ Wenger said.

‘It’s very sad. What Santi has gone through is unbelievable. It’s really, really sad.

‘If all goes well he has to wait until he starts to run and after he starts to run it takes six weeks to come back to training.

‘When he can start to run again I don’t know. I was hopeful of January, but after this setback certainly now not before February.’

The North London club could solve their woes in the transfer market, with the Daily Mirror previously linking the club with a move for Schalke’s Leon Goretzka, who could be a fine like-for-like replacement for Cazorla.
