Malaga insist they are not looking to sell Santi Cazorla, amid claims Arsenal have made a move for his services.

Despite their wealthy Qatari owners, they have been hit with financial issues in recent months which have seen some of their players, including Cazorla, go unpaid.

Indeed, Villarreal are still owed money on the deal which took him to the club last year.

With taxes also owed, Malaga have until the end of July to resolve any such outstanding financial issues. Reports have claimed Arsenal are ready to take advantage of the situation by snapping him up in a £20million deal, which is £15million less than his release clause.

Some reports even suggest the Gunners have agreed terms with the player.

But Malaga maintain they are not in the market to sell their star man.

"Cazorla is not for sale, we do not talk about rumours in the press and our plans are not to even negotiate his exit," a source told Sky Sports.

Malaga also expect to have their financial issues resolved soon.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
