Santi Cazorla has claimed that he wants a return to first-team action before the end of the campaign. The Spaniard has been unavailable for the gunners since 2016, as he has been suffering from an Achilles problem. This has forced him to undergo several surgeries. The forgotten man at Arsenal is aware that it will be an incredibly difficult time at Arsenal considering that manager Arsene Wenger is stepping down at the end of the campaign. The Frenchman has been in charge of the club for more than two decades and he was responsible for bringingCazorla to the club.
After having spent a huge amount of time on the sidelines, it would be difficult forCazorla to make a comeback without a pre-season. However, he says that he has done enough prep work in the last few weeks to think that his return before the end of the campaign could be possible.

Arsenal head coach Arsene Wenger has spoken fondly about Liverpool attacker Mohamed Salah, who he reckons as one of the best players in Europe on present form. The 25-year-old has been a revelation during his maiden season with Liverpool, and he has already contributed 35 goals across all competitions for the club.
Speaking to BeIN Sports, Wenger was asked about the impact of Salah in this season’s Premier League, to which he replied: “For me, he’s one of the best players in Europe at the moment. He can score goals against anybody because in England. You have many good defenders and he’s top scorer in the Premier League. He’s scored in Italy and in England. So overall, I think to keep him quiet will be very difficult at the World Cup.”

Arsene Wenger has denied suggestions that the club are interested in making a move for Thomas Lemar and David Luiz in the January transfer window. Arsenal have once again struggled to make any sort of an impact in the Premier League and are looking likely to finish in the top four at the very best. As a result, there are suggestions that Arsenal may reinforce the squad in January – especially considering that the top four finish is also not guaranteed. A number of players are also expected to leave Arsenal at the end of the campaign with key players like Alex Sanchez, Jack Wilshere, and Mesut Ozil coming to the end of their contracts.
David Luiz has followed with Chelsea manager Antonio Conte and has not featured in the blues team for the last few months. He is widely expected to leave Chelsea in the January transfer window. At 30 years of age, David Luiz will be an immensely experienced option for Arsenal at the back.

Speaking prior to the second leg versus Milan, Wenger admitted that the club are keen to win the competition in order to qualify for next season’s Champions League, but the route does not get easier with the likes of Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund still in the mix, he said: “You never compare. You’re right, I want to be in the Champions League and in the Europa League, if you look at the teams that are in there, it is very strong.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has suggested that Alexandre Lacazette’s confidence may have been hampered following the arrival of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang last month. The France international has played as a substitute in his previous two appearances, the latter of which came against Tottenham Hotspur.
The Gunners struggled to find any cutting edge during last weekend’s north London derby versus Spurs, but ultimately there was some regret after Lacazette missed a couple of clear-cut chances at the end. The Gunners were trailing 1-0 heading into the final 10 minutes of the game, and the Frenchman fluffed his line on two occasions including a one-and-one with Hugo Lloris.

Wales would miss forward Simon Church, Jonny Williams, and goalkeeper Danny Ward due to injuries in the game against Austria where more than 4,000 Welsh fans are expected.
