Arsenal are close to signing Spain international Santi Cazorla from Malaga as Arsène Wenger looks to strengthen his squad.

The 27-year-old is reportedly set to have a medical at the Gunners this week, and following the arrivals of Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud earlier this summer, Arsenal supporters appeared optimistic about the new season on Twitter.

Here are some of the Tweets that caught our eye.

Celebrity Arsenal fan Piers Morgan ‏(@piersmorgan) is excited by the prospective signing: “Trying not to get too excited about #Cazorla until the deal is confirmed. But he’s a FANTASTIC player. #Arsenal”

Sam Jeffery ‏(@SPJeffery) is delighted to see a player of such quality linked with a move to The Emirates: “#Arsenal making a signing is always exciting given it’s infrequency but this is surely a cracker? Santi Cazorla supposedly brilliant?”

While Alastair Lunn ‏(@Alzi94) believes Arsenal are proving their ambition to Robin van Persie: “Santi Cazorla on the plane to London!! Yes please. If that ain’t ambition in RVP’s eyes then it’s all for money #AFC”

And Carl Miller (‏@CarlWalrusMille) agrees: “#Santi playing at the Arsenal next year Podolski, Giroud and Cazorla – if that’s not ambition I don’t know what is @Persie_Official!”

Chamberlain fans (‏@Alex_OxChamboo) can see a few more signings arriving from Malaga: “Santi Cazorla will not be Arsenal’s last signing from Malaga. We are going for Isco…and maybe Rondon #AFC @GunnerGalactico!”

Marc Jones ‏(@MIjones82) is excited by the team Wenger is building in north London: “Arsenal sign Santi Cazorla for £17.3m. Good signing that straight in the dream team methinks.”

Yardman Blast ‏(@Boomblastda2nd) wants the deal done: “They need to hurry up and close this Santi Cazorla deal. I’m an impatient fan!”

However, Rob Blake ‏(@RBlake8) is more relaxed: “Santi Cazorla seems a dead cert so now I can finally relax, just want his number confirmed so I can go get my new shirt! #afc”

Paul (‏@Evanescence7041) hates all the speculation: “Santi Cazorla is now on three flights to London at the same time. There are so many muppets out there.”

And Hugo Atkins ‏(@Hugomongoose) is glad this Spanish midfielder won’t get homesick and want to return to Barcelona in a few seasons: “Santi Cazorla expected to sign for Arsenal very soon, exciting transfer. A Spanish player who won’t move home to Barca is always nice! #AFC”

While Liverpool fan Karl Green ‏(@_KarlGreen_) wishes Brendan Rodgers would make a bid: “Very jealous if Arsenal sign Santi Cazorla – awesome player!”

And fellow Reds supporter Kieran McFall ‏(@kgmmcf21) is similarly jealous: “Gutted there is a chance of Santi Cazorla going to Arsenal, amazing quality!!”
