Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger gives long-awaited update on Santi Cazorla's injury


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says attacking midfielder Santi Cazorla is "getting better every day".

The Spaniard has been out of action for nine months after suffering an Achilles injury that has required multiple surgeries.

The 32-year-old confessed earlier this week that he started recovery at the start of July but has no idea when he will be back in action.

Wenger also gave an update on Jack Wilshere who returned early from his loan spell at Bournemouth in April.

"Jack Wilshere is close to coming back to training," the Frenchman told reporters.

"For Santi, it is difficult to set a definite date but he is getting better every day.

"I would say that Gabriel [Paulista] is still a few weeks away because he has an inflammation of his bone."
