All the attention for the Gunners recently has been on Arsene Wenger’s decision to leave the club at the end of the season, ending a 22-year affiliation with the north London club.
It even overshadowed Arsenal’s Europa League semi-final with Atletico Madrid, which they lost 2-1 on aggregate on Thursday.
But as everyone comes to terms with Wenger’s exit, more focus will be put on what happens after he goes – and you have to wonder if Cazorla will be a part of that?
The Spanish midfielder hasn’t played for Arsenal since limping out of a Champions League game with Ludogorets in October 2016.
But he’s now back in training as he continues his recovery to full fitness and first team action – and Wilshere is leading those who will be delighted to see him back:
Cazorla revealed earlier this week that he actually hasn’t been offered a new contract at the Emirates so is set to leave, alongside Wenger, this summer.
But that situation may change with Arsenal likely to give him a chance to return to fitness and prove himself before deciding what to do with him long term.
