Madrid’s Ceballos set to join Arsenal on loan

-

ARSENAL head coach, Unai Emery voiced his admiration for Real Madrid’s Dani Ceballos, who is reportedly poised to join the Premier League side.

According to reports, Madrid midfielder Ceballos is on the verge of completing a season-long loan move to Arsenal.

It has been a slow transfer window for Arsenal, who have been linked with Celtic full-back Kieran Tierney, Saint-etienne teenager William Saliba and Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha. Asked about Spain internatio­nal Ceballos on the eve of yesterday’s Internatio­nal Champions Cup clash against Madrid in Maryland, Emery told reporters: “We were speaking about the possibilit­y to sign one player on loan and we have different names.

“The club was working on that. Ceballos is a very good player, I know him from Betis at the beginning and also at Real Madrid.

“He played very well with the under-21s, they won with his national team in this competitio­n.”

Arsenal head into pre-season match having won all three of their games in the United States.

The Gunners have beaten Colorado Rapids (3-0), Bayern Munich (2-1) and Fiorentina (3-0), with a number of their youngsters impressing – Eddie Nketiah with three goals so far.

“We started to play against Colorado Rapids with a lot of young players and progressiv­ely we are using less minutes and to share with the experience­d players,” Emery said when asked about Arsenal’s young players.
