Speaking to Marca and asked if he gets many calls from England about Chukwueze or Pau, Cazorla said: “Yes, friends from Arsenal especially.
“They ask me about them and think they can make the jump to the Premiership tomorrow.
“It’s good that great teams are interested in young players from Villarreal, but for the moment I tell them to leave them alone here.
“They still have to take steps forward. They both have a great personality, and their feet are on the ground.
“In Pau’s (Torres) case he hears constant talk of City or Barcelona , but he is aware that he has to keep growing as a player and that in the future we will see where he can go.”
