Arsenal missed his talents badly in the 0-0 draw against Middlesbrough and now, Juventus are looking to land Santi Cazorla in a January pre-contract agreement, report The Mirror.

According to Italian source Calcio Mercato, the Bianconeri are eager to take advantage of the contract uncertainty surrounding Cazorla’s future at Emirates Stadium with the Spaniard’s current deal running out in 2017.

With Arsenal yet to wrap up the former Malaga playmakers’ future, Juventus have been buoyed by the Gunners’ delay with the 31-year-old able to talk to other clubs at the turn of the New Year.

While Cazorla patiently waits for Arsenal to open talks over an extension, there doesn’t seem to be any public frustration on the Spaniards’ part.

In quotes to Cadena SER, the Spanish international previously claimed: “I hope I can stay here and continue to play.

“I am happy here. What a player wants is to play and to feel important. Fortunately, since I arrived at Arsenal, I’ve had the confidence of the coach and of my teammates.”

With Cazorla being a fan favourite since signing at Emirates Stadium back in 2012, we’re sure most Arsenal fans would like Arsene Wenger to make an exception to handing new deals to players in their thirties.
