The BBC claims Santi Cazorla has turned down the opportunity to move into coaching and join Mikel Arteta’s new-look backroom staff at Arsenal.

With the ex-Gunners midfielder preparing to take over as head coach of his former side, he is currently putting the finishing touches to what will be an unrecognisable management structure.

Indeed, given his continuous struggles with fitness, Cazorla was offered the chance to become a technical assistant in Arteta’s new regime, but has decided that he would like to keep playing football if that is at all possible. He now looks set to train with Villarreal over the summer, before El Submarino Amarillo decide whether to offer him a contract.
