- The Spaniard was released by the north Londoners in 2018 after his injury hell, before he joined Villareal
Former Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla has declared his desire to return to the club to form part of Mikel Arteta's coaching staff.
Cazorla enjoyed a spectacular campaign at Emirates that lasted six years under ex manager Arsene Wenger before he was allowed to leave the North London giants.
During the period, he helped the side win two FA Cup titles, playing alongside Arteta for four seasons.
However, his spell at the Gunners was brought to an abrupt halt after he suffered a career-ending injury.

Fortunately, the Spaniard shook off the injury scare to hit top form with Villareal who he has turned out for two seasons now.
But at 35 years of age, Cazorla has now entered sunset years of his career and he is now looking to take it to the next level.
According to the Spain international, he would be open to work as a coach under Arteta once he hangs his boots.
"I don’t know what my legacy is [at Arsenal]. You have to ask the fans, but I want to thank everyone," Cazorla told Vamos.
"I don’t know what I will do next, maybe a coach, maybe a sports director, but I would like to come back," he conceded.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how former Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor distanced himself from the statement 'attacking' the Confederation of African Football over awarding CAF prizes to players abroad.
The 36-year-old former Real Madrid star who joined Paraguayan Club Olimpia earlier this year was said to have expressed unhappiness that the awards recognises players in foreign leagues ahead of those playing on the continent.
Reports further revealed that Adebayor lashed out of Liverpool duo of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane who emerged winners in the last three editions.
However, while debunking the news, the former Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur man said he did not grant any media platform such an interview.
