To be fair to Arsene Wenger, I think most Arsenal fans would agree that having Santi Cazorla fit again would certainly be like having a new signing, after the Spanish international missed almost the whole of last season through injury.
The little magician would surely be a first team regular and a key player for the Gunners, so if he is expected back soon I can see why the boss would not feel the need to sign another player in his position. Perhaps Wenger is expecting Cazorla back soon as well, especially after the Spaniard posted a positive update about his recovery on social media this week, as reported by The Mirror.
He wrote, “One step more, one step closer! #Lookingforwardtoseeyouall!”
Up until recently it was all a bit doom and gloom concerning Cazorla and there were even reports suggesting that his playing career could be over – but that now seems to have changed. Is this why Wenger seems happy and relaxed about making another signing before the summer transfer window closes?
If so do you agree with the Frenchman or do you think it is too risky to bank on the fitness and form of a player who has been out for so long and who still does not have a definite date set for his comeback?
