Cazorla, now at Villarreal, wished his former teammate a quick recovery and insisted that he would come back stronger than ever.
He was joined by several teammates from the English rush when sending his wishes via social media, together with the former club Manchester United.
The obeisances came when Arsenal's "major ankle injury to the judge & # 39; confirmed and said he is still being assessed in the hospital. An update on his situation is expected this weekend.

In the post, Cazorla said: "Quickly become my friend. These are the worst things in football, but I know that you are strong and that you come back, you deserve the best My man. & # 39;
Welbeck sustained the injury when he landed heavily on his ankle after a challenge in the 30th minute for a header.
He was replaced by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and carried off the field on a stretcher after a few minutes of treatment on the field.
Welbeck & # 39; s England and former Manchester United team-mate Jesse Lingard also sent his best wishes via Twitter and said: "Get well soon Brother & # 39 ;.
Arsenal teammates Alexandre Lacazette and Mesut Ozil, both equipped for the European collision, were quick to give their thoughts to their afflicted teammate.
Despite having limited time in the Premier League this season, Welbeck had scored five goals in twelve games in the Gunners.
He was also named in the England squad for the upcoming friendly against the US and Nations League clash with Croatia.
Welbeck has a history of serious injuries in Arsenal, after he missed the English Euro 2016 campaign with a meniscal fracture, only a few months after recovering from another serious knee injury.
