Santi Cazorla has revealed Arsenal are yet to offer him a new contract despite entering the final year of his current deal at the Emirates.
“I hope I can stay here and continue to play,” the Spaniard told Cadena Ser. “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.
“I’ve played a lot of minutes. In the end, that is what every player wants.”
Cazorla moved to Arsenal in the summer of 2012 after one season at Malaga and has made a total of 177 appearances since then, scoring 29 goals.
He has scored two goals and set up two more in five Premier League starts for the club this season.
