Cazorla wants Arsenal trophies or Spain return

Santi Cazorla has said if he doesn’t win trophies with Arsenal by the time he’s 31, he’ll look to return to Spain, ESPN has reported.

Cazorla moved to the Gunners from Malaga in 2012 and has yet to pick up any silverware as Arsenal’s trophy drought continues. Arsene Wenger last took Arsenal to success in the 2005 FA Cup and while Wenger’s team are in the competition’s semi-finals this season, Cazorla is considering an exit strategy.

In an interview with Sport360, Cazorla confirmed he has thought about his next move. “I want titles and that is why I came to Arsenal,” the Spain international said. “Every football player wants to win titles. We've gone many years without winning one. And if not, what I'll look for in my next destination is to have the chance to win.

“I don't want to close doors. When I'm turning 31 I'll evaluate myself and I'll choose the best option. In which case, I would be delighted to come back [to Spain].”

Cazorla also revealed he had spoken with Spain teammate Iker Casillas about the possibility of the goalkeeper moving to the Emirates Stadium this summer. Casillas has lost his place in Madrid’s XI for La Liga but is the club’s goalkeeper for Champions League and Copa del Rey games.

“Arsenal has everything to win,” Cazorla continued. “History, infrastructure, an incredible stadium and great players, but we have to improve at crucial moments and sign the best football players because if you don't do that, you may lag behind others.

“That is what makes it different at other clubs,” Cazorla added on the subject of transfers. “You've a good example in Manchester City who signed Fernandiho, [Alvaro] Negredo... or even Manchester United with [Robin] van Persie and [Juan] Mata.

“Arsenal know what they need next season, but it's almost impossible to win a title if we haven't got these kind of things.”

Taxi for Cazorla then! He is a main part of Arsenal's problems. Would Chelsea play someone who can't run beyond, can't tackle, and can't get back. Not a chance- and neither would Manure, Citeh or Pool. He is a good player- but not in games like the ones we have been losing this season. He is a liability. Get shut!
