The Spanish international has spoken of his admiration for the young English starlet who has been in dazzling form for Arsene Wenger’s side since returning from a long injury lay-off in October last year.
And Cazorla believes that the 21-year-old adds “something extra” to the club, who are currently chasing a top-four Premier League finish.
The 28-year-old said: “I didn’t know much about him [Wilshere] when I came to the club because he hasn’t been around for very long. He surprised me because he is such a complete footballer.”
“He’s young and has a spectacular future ahead of him and he has also got a lot of room to mature and develop. I have no doubt he’s going to be even more important here in the future.”
Cazorla and Wilshere will be in Arsene Wenger’s plans this weekend as the Gunners travel to White Hart Lane on Sunday to take on fellow Champions League qualification chasers and local rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
