Cazorla Hoping to Come Back Before Wenger Exits

Santi Cazorla is nearing the end of his injury nightmare and is aiming to play for Arsenal again before Arsene Wenger bids farewell to the club.

The Spain international has endured a hellish 18 months after suffering a succession of setbacks in his recovery from a serious ankle problem.

His last outing for the Gunners came way back in October 2016, with several operations undergone since then as he endeavours to return to competitive action.

He told AS while working on his fitness at Real Oviedo’s training centre: “I've still got some way to go, because after being sidelined for 18 months, everything has to be done in its own time.

“But the sensations I have keep getting better and I'm feeling optimistic about the future.

“The objective is to play some part with the team before the season ends, but we have to take things carefully.”

Cazorla, who is due back in England on Thursday, added: “After being out for so long it will take a while to get back into form, it's a real struggle, but when you have been out like I have, you also notice pains elsewhere - apart from what I've had with my tendon."
