Santi Cazorla 'wants to win the Premier League or Champions League' with Arsenal next season
Spanish midfielder thinks new signings will help team build on FA Cup success
Thursday 17 July 2014
Santi Cazorla thinks Arsenal's new signings will propel them to another level next season and has declared he wants to win big with the Gunners.
Cazorla has seen Alexis Sanchez already arrive in north London this summer, with Mathieu Debuchy and Sami Khedira also linked with moves to the Emirates.
The Spaniard helped Arsenal end their nine-year wait for a trophy last season as the club lifted the FA Cup with a 3-2 win over Hull City.
But Cazorla isn't satisfied and wants Sanchez to help fire the Gunners to more success.
“We hope to win more trophies - I want to win the Premier League or Champions League,” he told goal.com
“Of course we can win. We have a good team and with the support of the fans it's important for us.
“We have high expectations to go better than last year. We won a trophy last year and we want to do it again. Hopefully we'll make some great signings to support the squad and if so, it'll be good.”
As well as the mooted signings, Arsenal will hope to see Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and Theo Walcott play more games in red this season, with each missing significant game time last year with injury.
“I'm very happy to have Ozil next to me,” the 29-year-old added. “We have a very special relationship. He makes it very easy for me. Obviously he'll help the team to improve next season.
“It wasn’t a surprise to see Ramsey developing into his role - I trained for two years with him and saw him develop. He’s a great player and we have big expectations for him."
