Ca­zorla’s Arse­nal con­tract saga rolls on

The Star (Kenya) - - Sports International Football -

BY RORY O’CAL­LAGHAN/ Santi Ca­zorla has con­firmed he is yet to re­ceive a new con­tract of­fer from Arse­nal.

Ca­zorla has been in sensational form for the Gun­ners at the start of the new sea­son and has helped guide the club to four con­sec­u­tive vic­to­ries in the Premier League in re­cent weeks.

The 31-year-old’s cur­rent con­tract at the Emi­rates is due to ex­pire at the end of the cam­paign but, de­spite his im­pres­sive form, Ca­zorla re­veals he is yet to be of­fered an ex­ten­sion.

“No, I don’t have any news from the club [re­gard­ing a new con­tract],’ he told Span­ish ra­dio sta­tion Cadena Ser.

“My fo­cus now is on play­ing and to be able to en­joy play­ing foot­ball fol­low­ing a sea­son when I had lots of (in­jury) prob­lems.”

Ca­zorla has al­ready formed a strong part­ner­ship with Arse­nal’s big-money sum­mer sign­ing Granit Xhaka. Af­ter los­ing to Liver­pool on the open­ing day, the Gun­ners have now picked up 13 points out of a pos­si­ble 15 in the league.
