Arsenal FC have officially announced the arrival of Dani Ceballos following a the completion of a season-long loan move from Spanish giant Real Madrid.
The Spanish playmaker arrives in England in preparation for the beginning of the new Premier League season at the North London side. Ceballos, who starred as Spain won the Under-21 European Championship last month, arrives with huge reputation and will be expected to slot in easily in the Arsenal team.
The 22-year-old player signed for Madrid from Real Betis in 2017 but failed to establish himself in his first season at Santiago Bernabeu. He had made only three LaLiga appearances following coach Zinedine Zidane’s return in March.

The player said of his decision to join the Gunners, “I knew I had the confidence of the coach, which was very important for me from the start. I was aware of the responsibility that wearing this shirt entails and it was a tremendously proud moment when I decided to join Arsenal.”
He added that Coach Unai Emery, who has come under heavy criticism from fans of the club in recent months, was “the turning point” in terms of his decision to join the club.
Dani Ceballos becomes Emery’s third signing of the close-season after William Saliba – who has been sent back to Saint-Etienne on loan – and young Brazilian forward Gabriel Martinelli.
He will wear the number 8 shirt which has been left vacant following the departure of Welsh player Aaron Ramsey from Arsenal to Italian powerhouse Juventus.
