Midfielder, Mikel Arteta is relishing the chance to play with fellow Spaniard Santi Cazorla at Arsenal.
The Gunners have agreed personal terms with 27-year-old winger Cazorla after Malaga accepted a fee of £16million.
'I cannot talk about the actual situation but I can say that I know him as a player really well. He's a top, top player. He has got unbelievable quality and talent and that is all I can say.' Arteta started
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger, who has already signed Olivier Giroud and Lukas Podolski, is looking forward to Cazorla's arrival and insists he is far from finished in the summer transfer market.
'I share the opinion of Mikel Arteta. Cazorla is a great player,' said Wenger.
'We bought Olivier Giroud and Lukas Podolski but we are not at the end of the transfers. We will still bring players in.'
Wenger is determined to keep captain Robin van Persie at the Emirates Stadium but the Holland striker is wanted by Manchester rivals United and City as well as Italian giants Juventus.
Theo Walcott, who is in the final year of his contract, has also been linked with a move away from north London.
