The Spain international injured his Achilles in the win over Ludogorets last month and there is still no date set for his return.
Wenger maintains that the Gunners have enough quality to cover for the loss of the Spaniard and he will not rush him although he would like him back as soon as possible.
“He’s important to our technical stability in the team, to the quality of our decision making and to our build-up from deep midfield to the high midfield,” Wenger said of Cazorla.
“That’s an important stage because it gets the ball out from the defenders. We have enough quality players in our side to get around that, even if Santi is a massive player for us.”
