Arsenal playmaker Santi Cazorla is loving his new role in central midfield for the north London outfit.

The 30-year-old Spanish international has spent most of his time on the flanks as a Gunner, but Arsene Wenger's experimentation proved beneficial for the former Valencia man, as evidenced by his four goals and three assists in his nine recent games in the Premier League.

"I always try to make goals," Cazorla told

"It's important for me because I am a midfielder and I always want to help the team score, and I will try to make more before the end of the season."

"I have more space [in the middle], more possibilities to score and assist, and I like this position very much. I always can help the team and I love when I play in the middle."

He is looking forward to continue putting on magnificent performances until, at least, the end of the ongoing campaign.

"I want to continue to play at this level for the rest of the season," he added.

"I always want to help the team with goals. I hope to score more until the end of the season. It's very important for me and the team."
