As numerous sources in France and Spain have been saying for the best part of a week, Arsenal are on the cusp of completing a permanent deal for Saint-Étienne’s William Saliba and the season-long loan of Dani Ceballos from Real Madrid.
In case you missed them.
Saliba. 18. Centre-back. €30 million deal. 5-year contract. Will spend next season back on loan at his current club.
Ceballos. 22. Central midfielder. One year loan. No option to buy.
They are expected to take their respective medicals in the coming days.
Spurs showed an interest in both players. Neither will sign for Spurs. Both will sign for Arsenal.
Obviously, we’re pleased to see us signing players, but that doesn’t stop us from having a serious case of transfer window fatigue.
