The news we have been waiting for is nearly upon us, we are a giant leap closer to receiving full confirmation of what is going to be one of the signings of the summer!

BBC’s David Ornstein has tonight confirmed that Arsenal have signed Santi Cazorla for an absolute steal reportedly below ¬£15 million! The influential Spanish International has fled the financially troubled Malaga and signed a long term deal with the Gunners. The financial problems and politics at the club are apparently the reason for the transfer dragging out much longer than expected.

The deal is expected to be announced officially by Arsenal tomorrow ahead of Arsene Wenger’s press conference, the question remains whether Cazorla is in Germany with the squad already, with some rumours claiming to have spotted the midfield maestro with the team.

We at GoonerNow are very excited at this news and hope you are too!

    Well, that’s nice but the BBC isn’t always accurate. Until this is up on Arsenal.com will I believe the deal is “done and dusted”.

    I still wonder why this is taking long, yet cazorla’s former team-mate Rondon was signed with much ease by Rubin kazan. It amazes me when some blogs claim that there’s no official at malaga to sign of the transfer but i think its in the interest of both clubs to keep the fans waiting and take their time to officially comfirm this transfer that has been concluded some days back.
