Cazorla confirms calls from Arsenal over Chukwueze and Pau Torres transfers

Former Arsenal star Santi Cazorla has revealed he has received calls from people at the club to discuss possible transfer moves for two of his current team-mates.

Cazorla, who left the Gunners after six years to head back to Villarreal in 2018, plays alongside centre-back Pau Torres and winger Samuel Chukwueze as both attract demand from top clubs.

Torres, 23, was handed a first senior Spain call-up last year whilst Nigerian Chukwueze has been the subject of reported Liverpool interest.

But Arsenal could also be in the frame, with Cazorla confirming he gets calls from people involved at the Emirates asking if they are capable of making the transition to the Premier League.

Speaking to Marca and asked if he gets many calls from England about Chukwueze or Pau, Cazorla said: “Yes, friends from Arsenal especially.

“They ask me about them and think they can make the jump to the Premiership tomorrow.

“It’s good that great teams are interested in young players from Villarreal, but for the moment I tell them to leave them alone here.

“They still have to take steps forward. They both have a great personality, and their feet are on the ground.

“In Pau’s (Torres) case he hears constant talk of City or Barcelona, but he is aware that he has to keep growing as a player and that in the future we will see where he can go.”
