Arsenal are interested in signing Iker Casillas from Real Madrid, according to Santi Cazorla.

The Spanish goalkeeper has been linked with a host of top clubs in recent months after falling out of favour at the Bernabeu and not having featured in any of Los Blancos‘ La Liga games this season.

His situation is very complicated, but he has to make a decision

The 32-year-old’s current contract in Spain expires in 2017, and the shot-stopper said last month that he would be willing to see out that deal.

But Arsenal playmaker Cazorla has claimed that the Gunners have already expressed an interest in bringing the experienced goalkeeper to Emirates Stadium.

“I’ve told him [I want him to join Arsenal], but so far he has just been curious about my experience in England,” Cazorla told Sport360.

“His situation is very complicated, but he has to make a decision.

“Lots of clubs want him, including Arsenal, but I think that it would be very difficult to leave Real Madrid because of what the club represents.

“He knows what he has [at Madrid] and what he could find at another club.”
