Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla insists he is happy at the club - for now.

Cazorla, who believes new signing Alexis Sanchez can win Arsenal the league, had been linked with a move to Atletico Madrid and admitted he had spoken to his Spain team-mates about what life was like there.

However, he told ESPN he is happy to stay at the Emirates, where he has another two years remaining on his contract since £15 million move from Malaga two years ago.

"I'm very happy at Arsenal, I've got two more years here on my contract," Cazorla said. "Arsenal is great for me. I'm happy to be here at the moment and focus on that.

"I always try to give my best on and off the pitch. I'm a happy guy, I'm a funny guy. I try to bring a good mood into the changing rooms on and off the pitch and that is what I will continue to do this year."

Cazorla ended last season as one of Arsenal's most influential players; his outstanding free-kick during their FA Cup final victory at Wembley helped the club end a nine-year trophy drought.
