Cazorla: Arsenal's Giroud up there with Suarez, Aguero, Rooney, van Persie

Santi Cazorla has heaped high praise on Arsenal teammate Olivier Giroud.

The Spanish midfielder suggests his French colleague is as good a striker as in-form Liverpool ace Luis Suarez, Manchester City star Sergio Aguero and Manchester United pair Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney.

"For me, he is [at] the same level as the other strikers in the league," Cazorla told RMC when asked how he compares to Suarez and Rooney particularly.

"He is sturdy and can keep the ball. On the surface, he is effective, either with his feet or head. He is a little different from what is done in England, but he offers a lot.

"He is a great striker and has showed it all season, for Arsenal and France. He has improved to a high level and is getting better every year."
