Santi Cazorla commits to Arsenal

Santi Cazorla has dismissed "false" suggestions that he will move to Atletico Madrid this summer and insists that he is "very happy" at Arsenal.

The midfielder has been strongly linked with a switch to the Spanish capital following an impressive season in which he played a key role in the Gunners' successful FA Cup defense.

Cazorla says that he is focused only on Arsenal and intends to see out the two years remaining on his contract in north London.
"Rumors about Atletico Madrid are false. Currently, I just focus on Arsenal. I have two more years on my contract here and I hope to complete them," the midfielder told Goal.

"I'm very happy in Arsenal and in the Premier League. I feel loved and valued by the team and supporters."
The 30-year-old was Arsene Wenger's choice as the Gunners' player of the season and played a key role in Arsenal's excellent form in the second half of the campaign as the club finished third in the Premier League before beating Aston Villa in the FA Cup final.

The Spain international thrived in a deep-lying midfield role and has urged Arsenal to continue its momentum into next season to challenge for a first title since 2004.
"I don't know if this was my best year of my career but I felt so good with the team, playing in a new position that I feel comfortable in," Cazorla added. "I hope next year to be even better. If we want to fight for Premier League, we must maintain the level of the second half of last season. I think that that we need to fight against Chelsea, [Manchester] City and [Manchester] United, they will be stronger next season".

"We are so happy to win the FA Cup again, it is very important for us to win trophies and now we are preparing ourselves for the next season. We want to make a step up in our quality and hope to fight for Premier League and go further in the Champions League."
