Cazorla: Arsenal interested in Casillas

Casillas wanted by Arsenal

Arsenal midfield star Santi Cazorla has revealed that the club are interested in signing Real Madrid shot-stopper Iker Casillas in the summer.

Cazorla, who joined the Gunners from Malaga in the summer of 2012, feels that the Spanish national team skipper could leave Los Blancos at the end of the season, thus paving a way for the North London outfit to secure his services.

 

“I’ve told him [I want him to join Arsenal], but so far he has just been curious about my experience in England." Cazorla said. “Lots of clubs want him, including Arsenal, but I think that it would be very difficult to leave Real Madrid because of what the club represents.“He knows what he has [at Madrid] and what he could find at another club.”

 

The Gunners face-off against Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembely on Saturday, as they aim to end their nine-year trophy drought.
