Arsenal set to secure another season for top performer from last season

Arsenal is close to agreeing on a new loan deal for Dani Ceballos, The Guardian reports.

The Spaniard spent last season on loan at the Emirates before he returned to Real Madrid in the summer.

Arsenal has maintained that they wanted to take him back on loan for another season.

It was left for Real Madrid to sanction the move because the midfielder also appeared keen on a return to the Emirates.

The report claims that Mikel Arteta called him to convince him that making a return to the Emirates will be to his interest and he has agreed to join the Gunners again.

Both clubs are now looking to put finishing touches to the move before the Spaniard joins the Gunners.

Arsenal has had a busy transfer window and bringing back Ceballos will be a very fine piece of business.

The Spaniard was key to Arsenal’s late run of fine form last season that saw them win the FA Cup.

He has missed another celebratory moment as the Gunners beat Liverpool to win the Community Shield, but they will have more stuff to celebrate when he joins.

Ceballos will join Willian as a new addition to the Arsenal team and they look more like a team that can challenge for the top four now.

      I love this optimism,a lot of gunners can learn from you

    When we was a CL team we was always about 3 players short of giving a real challangewith the currrent set of players its not that we was so awful the players needed coaching and tatics not just free flowing football.
    Back to my first point about being 3 players short Arteta has forward his transfer plans to those incharge it is time they back our manager after what was a below par season has so far got us two trophies.
    No more cutting corners give the man the players he needs let the youth blosdom and watch the rise of the Arsenal.
    No Eleney is not a new signing one good game is not a season get Partey in and let our party on the pitch begin.

      1. ozziegunner says:

        Emery wanted Thomas Partey and was denied and Arteta still wants him; surely this says something to the Board and senior executive?
        Arsenal having Saliba back, Holding to gain experience and playing time on loan and Gabriel almost signed has the CB position strengthened for some time into the future. Midfield is the area that now needs strengthening with Ceballos returning on loan, Partey, Diawara and Aouar on the radar.
        If Aubameyang has re signed and these transfers and loans come to fruition Arsenal has built for success now and the future.

          We will be ready to roll, Ozzie 👍

  3. RFrancis says:

    No doubt a good addition or rather re-addition to the squad. I think we are still short of a true box-to-box player who can reliably score 10 or more goals per season. Perhaps a fit Aaron Ramsey would be interested in this role!

    1. Dan kit says:

      I bloody hope not mate
      That would set us back again if he was to resign
      And some of our bank manager fans wouldn’t be happy having to pay him 400 k a week

        👍

  4. Goonster says:

    I just feel like we need better than Ceballos. Okay player but has not excited me much.
    But won’t mind him as an alternative.
    ..

    1. ahmad73 says:

      Exactly Goonster. He was OK/good after the shutdown. But to say he was a top player is a stretch. Read somewhere he had 2 assists and 0 goals!

      1. ozziegunner says:

        Let’s see how Ceballos goes for a full season injury free under Arteta, with someone like Partey along side him in midfield.

        1. ahmad73 says:

          With Partey, I would expect him to be more productive. But let’s see whether we get Partey. The protracted Partey saga is becoming frustrating.

  5. Sean M says:

    According to reports, £4m loan fee and covering £50k p/w wages. No option to buy. He turned down three other clubs to come back. The Arteta effect strikes once again.

    1. jon fox says:

      Sean, Assuming those reports are true that is a tremendous value deal for us at those figures.

  6. gunnerforlife says:

    Hope Ceballos comes to Arsenal soon. Missed him in the Community Shield win. But I still feel both Partey and Aouar are still needed to be signed and with that we will have a wonderful squad to challenge for everything that comes by. Kudos to MA for having turned the tide. The world now watches Arsenal with a different pair of eyes.

  7. Adajim says:

    If Cebalos is the last player we buy this summer, it wouldn’t be a bad business, overall, with him, we might not need Partey and Aourora to finish top 4, the way MA is planning to play, knowing how short fund is, it’s probably we wouldn’t need a no 10 formations, our major creativity will not be coming from mf but wings, Liverpool don’t really have a creative midfielder, having intelligent wingers was enough for them to get the title, we can follow suit and maybe change sometimes for those team that seat too deep.
    We still have Ozil, he will play his parts too, nevertheless.
    We are going to see more of 343 this season.
    If we get either of Aourora or Partey in, or both, that would be icing on the cake, but if we fail, I’ll support the team to make top 4, with cebalos on board, we are good to go.
    I dont know but probably he might not be available for the start of the season, it’s a shame

    1. ozziegunner says:

      Adajim, Arsenal needs a physical commanding box to box midfielder to toughen up the Arsenal spine. There is a reason both Emery and Arteta wanted Partey.

    2. Rashid80 says:

      Liverpool have intelligent wingers and full backs as well! Robertson and Arnold make lethal runs and crosses all the time! And no we shouldnt be good with only ceballos.. He hasn’t really impressed and we do need a box to box midfielder and a DM.. Auoar would be the icing on the cake but Partey is essential!

  8. A J says:

    Good news, really rate this player.

    First noticed him for Spain’s U21’s in 2019 when they won the Euro championship., and wished we could grab him then.

    Welcome”home” Dani !

  9. Jamestosin frank says:

    I think Arsenal should go all the way to get Said Benrahma the guy plays like EdenHazard plus he’s a cheap option very good with the ball with pace

  10. Jamestosin frank says:

    I don’t really rate ceballos we deserve better

  11. Sue says:

    OT.. Ken Friar has stepped down from the board…..

    1. ozziegunner says:

      Sue, hopefully Arsenal will bring in someone with football expertise. David O’Leary or Dennis Bergkamp anyone?

      1. Sue says:

        Hopefully, Ozzie 👍
