Malaga winger Santi Cazorla is rumored to be interested in leaving the club this summer.
The Spanish outfit simply don't have enough money to pay their players, meaning that players like Cazorla are looking elsewhere ahead of the upcoming year.
The latest development is that Malaga have rejected a £15.6 million bid by Arsenal.
Malaga boss Manuel Pellegrini told the club's official website (via Goal.com):
"At the moment, we’ve been offered 20 million euros for Santi Cazorla; selling him for this amount of money is practically giving him away."

Arsenal reject Nicklas Bendtner has also been linked with a move this summer.
Bendtner, 24, is believed to have fallen out of favor with manager Arsene Wenger.
He was sent out on loan to Sunderland last season, but a more permanent deal is expected to take place over this year's summer transfer window.
Tomas Rosicky is also in the Arsenal news this week with reports emerging that he will not be healthy for the start of the upcoming English Premier League season (via Sky Sports).
The Czech Republic midfielder reportedly picked up an injury against Greece at the recent 2012 European Championships, and an operation on his Achilles is needed, which will sideline him for at least two months.

The 34-year-old has confirmed that he is interested in making a move back to Arsenal, regardless of whether that is on loan as a player or a more permanent move as a player manager or striker coach.
Either way, Gunners fans would be more than happy to see Henry back in Arsenal colors.
