The young England international has been very impressed by the new summer signing at the Emirates during his debut despite his side's draw against Sunderland in their opening game
Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is confident that new addition Santi Cazorla will prove to be a "massive asset for the club", and thinks the new £18 million summer signing is "technically brilliant".

The Spain international impressed despite the Gunners enduring opening stalemate against Sunderland at the weekend, and Oxlade-Chamberlain believes that Cazorla is a positive signing and is certain he will play an important role for the club.

"[Cazorla] is a brilliant player," Oxlade-Chamberlain told reporters. "He is a typical Spanish player - right foot, left foot, technically brilliant.

"He is a clever player. He is not the most physical, he is only short. But I think that highlights how good he must be in his head and with his feet.

"From what I have seen so far, he is a massive asset for the club and he is a really good lad as well, which always helps.

"I think he is going to do really well for us."
