Arsenal have confirmed the loan signing of Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos.
Earmarked as a replacement for Aaron Ramsey, the 22-year-old will spend the year at the Emirates.
He remains under contract at the Bernabeu until 2023 and the Gunners, who are paying €4 million for the loan, do not have an option to buy him next summer.
