Arsenal are reportedly preparing for the possible summer departure of key attacking midfielder Santi Cazorla to Atletico Madrid as they target Hoffenheim starlet Roberto Firmino.

According to the Daily Mirror, the Gunners could be prepared to make a £20m bid for the highly-rated Brazilian, who has caught the eye of Manchester United and other big clubs with his displays in the Bundesliga.
The 23-year-old has 10 goals and 7 assists in all competitions this season, showing he can fill the Cazorla role well, and, like the Spaniard, is able to occupy a number of different attacking midfield positions.
Cazorla has been linked strongly with Atletico and may be one of the big names at the Emirates Stadium seeking an exit this summer after this week’s disappointing defeat to AS Monaco in the Champions League.
