Former Arsenal star Santi Carzola on the verge of joining Qatari side Al Sadd

Former Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla is set to join Qatari side Al Sadd, BBC Sports reports.

The 35-year-old former Spain international bid farewell to Villareal after their 2-0 win over Real Betis on Sunday after his contract expired.

"We have reached an agreement with Santi Cazorla," Al Sadd tweeted. "He will reach Doha soon to complete the formalities and join the team."

At Al Sadd, Carzola will be managed by former Spain international team-mate Xavi, who extended his stay in Qatar despite reports linking him with a move back to Barcelona. 

Carzola spent six seasons at Arsenal making 180 appearances between 2012 and 2018 before moving back to Villareal for a second stint.
