Cazorla is out of contract in the summer and has previously spoken about wanting to return to Arsenal in a coaching capacity. We also know he’s great mates with Mikel Areta and Cazorla is open to working alongside him.

The 35-year-old, however, still wants to play and after the injury he suffered at Arsenal, who can blame him.

His two goals from the spot on Wednesday took him to 14 goals, with 10 assists, for the season from 2,616 minutes.

That’s a goal or assist every 109 minutes across 37 games.

Cazorla’s brace also took him to 10 league goals for the season, his best return since he scored 12 for Arsenal in the 2012/13 season.

Cazorla still has plenty to offer as a player.

The big question is can Arsenal find an offer to tempt him back to London when he still wants to play, if they even want to in the first place…
