The 31-year-old, who extended his contract with the Gunners in July last year, has scored 25 goals under manager Arsene Wenger since joining from Malaga in 2012.

“I am happy here. I am trusted by the manager and my team-mates. I am feeling important here, and if they’ll offer me a new contract, I’ll sign it because I am very happy with this great club,” Cazorla told Spanish radio station Cadena Ser.

Cazorla has scored twice in seven Premier League appearances this season. The London club, who are third in the standings, host Swansea City on October 15.
