Theo Walcott and Santi Cazorla recently put pen to paper and signed new long-term Arsenal deals, and fellow Gunner Mesut Özil has congratulated the pair and praised the club for tying them down.
The German World Cup winner took to Twitter to deliver his message, praising both men in the process.

These three Arsenal stars are likely to prove instrumental in our upcoming season, and have been among our most important players in recent times.
Cazorla has been one of our most consistent performers – scoring eight times and assisting 15 last season – while Özil is finally starting to justify his massive price tag.
Walcott has spent a significant portion of the last two seasons injured, but has shown that he’s capable of great things since his return to the side.

The pacy forward has been handed a number of chances up front, and has impressed each and every time – scoring goals for fun.
It’s great that we’ve tied both Walcott and Cazorla down to new deals, and the team Arsene Wenger has built is really starting to resemble a side that can challenge for the Premier League title.
