Santi Cazorla is travelling to Sweden early next week to undergo surgery to his right ankle.
The club’s medical team and specialists have decided that surgery is required to the plantaris tendon in the Spain international's right foot.
The problem has not progressed during a rehabilitation programme following the injury during the home match with Ludogorets on October 19.
We expect Santi’s full recovery to take approximately three months.
Everyone at the club will be working hard with Santi to make sure he’s back on the pitch as soon as possible.
