Cazorla scored Arsenal's first goal in Sunday's Community Shield win over Manchester City.

Cazorla got past Gael Clichy and slotted home in the 21st minute to give the Gunners the early advantage. This could be a make-or-break campaign for the Spanish midfielder after a relatively poor 2013-14 season.

Arsenal has set the transfer price at 15m if Atletico Madrid is interested in Cazorla, according to The Daily Star.

Cazorla, 29, is coming off a disappointing Premier League season (four goals, eight assists over 31 games) and Arsenal has a crowded group of midfielders, so the timing might be right for a transfer. Atletico has some cash to spend after shipping Diego Costa and Filipe Luis to Chelsea this summer.

Cazorla recorded four goals and eight assists in 31 appearances for Arsenal during the 2013-2014 Premier League season.

Cazorla's statistical output dipped from the 12 goals and 11 assists he notched as a Premiership debutant last season, but the Spaniard maintained a strong creative influence in attack nonetheless. Following the addition of central midfielder Mesut Ozil, Cazorla was mostly deployed as a winger, which limited his influence to some extent. However, Cazorla still ranked second on the Gunners with 73 shots attempts this season, showing his eye for goal. He also tied for second-place on the team in assists. While offseason additions and the return of injured players could impact his playing time slightly next season, Cazorla will likely remain a threatening fantasy option.

Cazorla picked up an assist in Tuesday's 3-1 win over West Ham.

Cazorla now has four goals and five assists this season, a pretty good drop off from the 12 goals and 11 assists he posted in Premier League play last season (albeit in 10 more games).

Cazorla officially signed a contract extension with Arsenal, the club's official site reports.

Cazorla has been in fine form this season, and will be heavily relied upon in the short term, with Mesut Ozil (hamstring), Jack Wilshere (ankle), and Aaron Ramsey (thigh) all sidelined with injuries.

Although Cazorla is dealing with an undisclosed illness, he played the final 21 minutes in Sunday's FA Cup victory over Liverpool.

Cazorla didn't factor in the scoring, though he was active in a handful of sequences. In any event, he doesn't appear any worse for wear.

Cazorla picked up an assist in Sunday's 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace, setting up Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's first of two goals.

Make it four goals and an assist for Cazorla over the past six starts. The Gunners aren't exactly scorching the nets of late - they haven't hit the three-goal mark since late December - but Cazorla's been a factor more often than not.
