Santi Cazorla believes that Arsenal are in need of significant reinforcements in the summer if they are to challenge for the Premier League title next season.

The Gunners have seen their title hopes disintegrate after a run of just one win in six top-flight outings dropped them down into fourth place in table.

It’s almost impossible to win a title if we haven’t got these kind of things

And Cazorla, who signed a new contract with the Gunners last month, has hinted that he would consider a move away from north London should they fail to make progress in the coming seasons.

“I want titles and that is why I came to Arsenal,” Cazorla, 29, told Sport360. “Every football player wants to win titles. We’ve gone many years without winning one.

“And if not, what I’ll look for in my next destination is to have the chance to win.”

Cazorla continued: “[The winning mentality] is what makes it different at other clubs.

“You’ve a good example in Manchester City who signed Fernandinho, [Alvaro] Negredo… or even Manchester United with [Robin] Van Persie and [Juan] Mata.

“Arsenal know what they need next season, but it’s almost impossible to win a title if we haven’t got these kind of things.

“I don’t want to close doors, but nowadays I’ve a contract with Arsenal for two more seasons.

“When I’m turning 31 I’ll evaluate myself and I’ll choose the best option. In which case, I would be delighted to come back [to Spain].”
