Cazorla close to being a Gunner
Arsenal will reportedly secure a £17.3million deal to bring Malaga's Santi Cazorla to the Emirates Stadium early next week.
The Spain international midfielder is currently in London finalising his move and it is understood he will be part of the Gunners squad which travels to Germany for a training camp next week, if the deal is completed by then. Details of the proposed move are still sketchy due to complications caused by the financial plight of Malaga, but the deal is expected to go through next week. His signing would be the third major piece of transfer business completed by Arsenal in the close season, with Lukas Podolski and Montpellier forward Olivier Giroud also arriving in north London. Arsenal will take on Cologne next Sunday in a friendly arranged as part of the deal which brought Podolski to the club.
