Santi Cazorla believes that Jack Wilshere has a “spectacular” future ahead of him at Arsenal and admits he was surprised by the impact the England international has made this season.

Wilshere, 21, has been one of the Gunners’ star players this term after recovering from the ankle and knee injuries that forced him to miss the whole of the 2011-12 campaign.

“I didn’t know much about him when I came to the club because he hasn’t been around for very long. He surprised me because he is such a complete footballer,” Cazorla told Arsenal Player.

“He’s young and has a spectacular future ahead of him and he’s also got a lot of room to mature and develop. I have no doubt that he’s going to be even more important here in the future.”

Cazorla also believes that he and Wilshere, who signed a new long-term contract with the Gunners earlier this season, are beginning to develop an understanding in the north Londoners’ midfield.

“He adds something extra and I’m gradually getting to know his style of play better,” he added.

“His way of playing complements my own; in fact, we play in similar positions and that makes it easier for us to establish a greater understanding every day.

“As I’ve said, he adds that little bit more that we need in many of our games. His return from injury was a great plus for the club and we all hope he can maintain the level he’s at because he’s very good.”
