Three of the four main sports papers in Spain say that Arsenal are close to signing Dani Ceballos on loan.
The two Madrid dailies, AS and Marca, are joined by Catalan outlet El Mundo Deportivo in reporting that the midfielder is on the verge of securing a loan move to North London next season.
The 22 year old has been linked with us throughout the summer, and would certainly help fill the gap left by Aaron Ramsey who joined Juventus.
With the need to add a body and some quality, the Spaniard would be an excellent choice, and a loan move wouldn’t eat too much into our restricted transfer budget.
It’s suggested a deal could be done this week, but with Arsenal set to face Real Madrid in Landover, Maryland next week, there’s the potential then for executives from both clubs to thrash out a deal if it’s not done beforehand.
Given the plethora of sources, the poos are getting lower.
