Spanish midfielder Santi Cazorla said he would be happy to sign a new contract with Premier League club Arsenal despite local media linking him with a move to La Liga side Atletico Madrid.

The 31-year-old, who extended his contract with the Gunners in July last year, has scored 25 goals under manager Arsene Wenger since joining from Malaga in 2012.

“I am happy here and I am trusted by the manager and my teammates,” Cazorla told Spanish radio station Cadena Ser.

“I feel important here, and if they offer me a new contract, I'll sign it because I am very happy with this great club,” he added.
