Santi Cazorla has taken to social media to reveal that he cannot wait to be back in action for Arsenal after undergoing ankle surgery this week.

The Spanish playmaker went under the knife in Sweden on Wednesday to correct the problem that has kept him out of action since October.

Cazorla’s surgery was a success and the midfielder was quick to post a picture of himself giving the thumbs up in hospital after the operation.

He shared the photo above on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “Surgery done! It was perfect! Looking forward to be back at the #emiratesstadium with you! @arsenal”

The Spaniard is expected to be out of action for at least two months as he recovers from the operation.

Arsenal return to Premier League action on Saturday with a home clash against Stoke City at The Emirates.

The north London side are currently second in the table and three points behind leaders Chelsea after their 5-1 win over West Ham United last weekend.

The Gunners have not won the Premier League title since 2004.
