Santi Cazorla believes it is important to replace their departing stars
Arsenal new boy Santi Cazorla has called on the club to replace Robin van Persie and Alex Song.
The Dutchman completed his move to Manchester United last week and the Gunners have accepted an offer from Barcelona for the Cameroon midfielder.
“It’s clear that he [Van Persie] is a great player, a spectacular player, and obviously we would all have preferred it if he had stayed,” said Cazorla.
“Song has gone as well and there are still 10 days left in the market.
“I do not know if we will sign anyone but obviously it’s important to replace players like that because they were so important for the team.”
