With Santi Cazorla’s contract still the subject of much speculation and no new offer on the table from Arsenal yet, Juventus are the latest club to be linked with a move for our magical Spaniard.

Italian website, Calciomercatorweb, claim [via Mercafutbol] that the Italians would quite like to get their hands on Santi on a free transfer but I cannot fathom Arsenal letting him leave.

Nor the fan carnage it would cause should they do so.

I can think of no reason why Arsenal have not already tied him down to a new deal – Santi would be more than happy to stay, he’s a regular starter and a vital cog in the Arsenal machine, as we saw when we lost him last season to injury.

What could be the problem?

Are Arsenal just being complacent because they know he doesn’t want to go anywhere?

They need to show him a little bit of love and get that deal sorted.

As much as everyone is focused on the contracts of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez, this one is just as important.

Make it happen, Arsenal, so we can just laugh at nonsense linking him with a move away.
