Harry Redknapp hails Arsenal's recruitment of midfielder Santi Cazorla from Malaga in the summer as "a truly great signing".

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp believes that midfielder Santi Cazorla is the best signing of the summer in the Premier League.

The Spain international joined the Gunners from Spanish club Malaga and has made an impressive start to life in the Premier League.

"Cazorla is a superb footballer and I think Arsenal have got a real diamond," Redknapp wrote in The Sun.

"However much they got for Cesc Fabregas, £40m or whatever it was, they have managed to replace him for less than half the money.

"I am a huge fan of Cesc, but I honestly don't think there is anything between the two of them. They're both top Spanish internationals — and Cazorla will be a truly great signing for the Gunners. Probably the best one any side made this summer, in my opinion."

Cazorla won the European Championship in 2008 and 2012 with Spain.
