FORMER Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla has admitted he would like "to come back" to the club.
The Spanish fan-favourite left the Gunners for Villarreal in 2018 after spending six brilliant seasons at the Emirates Stadium.
The 37-year-old is now with Qatari side Al Sadd and is looking ahead to the next stage in his career.
Cazorla still holds the Gunners close to his heart as he keeps tabs on them and has said that he would be interested in working for the club again.
He told the Daily Mail: "My dream was to play more and more years for [Arsenal].
"Of course, I would like to come back, I have to wait if the club thinks about me, if I can help in something – as a coach or a sporting director."
