Gunners could reportedly welcome Dani Ceballos from Real Madrid next week as they close in on a loan deal for the Los Blancos midfielder.
Spain international has struggled to make a consistent impact at the Bernabeu, as although he played 56 matches across the last two seasons, it has been in a bit-part role as he has battled to become a more prominent figure in the starting XI.
There’s little doubt over his talent and potential as he showed his quality earlier this summer for Spain U21s as they won the European Championships, and he’ll undoubtedly hope to now build on that with regular playing time to take his game to the next level.
It has been suggested that all that is standing in the way for Dani to join the London club on loan is Zinedine Zidane’s approval.
Given the French manager has the likes of Luka Modric, Toni Kroos and Casemiro at his disposal in midfield, it’s difficult to see how Spanish midfielder displaces them consistently, and so he may well be willing to allow him to move on in a temporary deal.
Arsenal are on the verge of securing an agreement, as it’s claimed that not only has Dani given his approval of the move, but it’s even suggested that the switch could be confirmed next week.
The 22-year-old midfielder will add technical quality, style and creativity to Unai Emery’s squad, and the London club coach will surely be delighted if they can indeed now wrap up a loan deal to ensure the Spanish star can give them a hand in the upcoming campaign.
