Arsenal legend Robert Pires is a big fan of Santi Cazorla.

The pair played together at Villarreal.

"He would have won many more caps for Spain but he is playing at the same time as ­people like Xavi and Iniesta," Pires told the Sunday Mirror.

"He has adjusted to England very quickly. He will not have a ­problem and the fans will love him.

"This is a ­difficult time for ­Arsene Wenger. He has lost ­important players in the last year like Gael Clichy, Cesc ­Fabregas, Robin van Persie and Alex Song.

"But he has lost players in the past and replaced them and I am sure he will do it again."
