The Spanish midfielder Santi Cazorla has this week shared some bad news with his fans, confirming that he will need another intervention to his Achilles injury.

The Gunners star has endured torrid time over the past year which saw him go under the knife nine times. The experienced Spanish international was forced to push the return date even further with the latest update on his fitness status and Arsenal are said to be beginning to lose faith.

Cazorla’s contract is set to expire next summer and Gunners appear to have already started looking for a replacement.

AC Milan are reportedly ready to make a bid for Udinese midfielder Jakub Jankto, according to Calciomercato via talkSPORT. The Serie A giants are said to be in the market for a central midfielder and have long been an admirer of Jankto. Milan could make an official approach when the January transfer window opens.

Arsenal and Everton have also been linked with the 21-year-old, who last season scored and created nine goals in 24 Serie A starts, and has contributed two goals in five appearances this campaign. The Gunners have long needed to strengthen their midfield, but Jankto may be unlikely to dethrone the likes of Granit Xhaka and Aaron Ramsey currently.
