The 33-year-old has not appeared for Arsenal in over a year but could feature before the end of the season after he was added to Wenger’s Europa League squad last week.

‘I wish [he could take over Cazorla’s role]. Santi was an exceptional football player, technically to find Santi [would be difficult].
“[Mkhitaryan] for sure has the technical level to play in our team.”
