I am not overwhelmed by the signing of Dani Ceballos for a variety of reason but I am hopeful that it can work out for all parties.
The reason I am not overwhelmed is that I am not a fan of developing other teams players and loaning players in positions that are not in desperate need of strengthening.
But that does not mean I do not welcome him, being underwhelmed is not being negative and there are some good possibilities that can come from signing the attacking midfielder.
The biggest one is if he can displace Mesut Ozil once and for all.
Every Arsenal fan has a position on the German playmaker and that includes me.
I find him a waste of space, massively overrated, lazy with an appalling attitude, I also find him a sponger bleeding the club dry.
I do not blame him for securing the ridiculous wage he is on, I blame the club for that but I do blame him for not earning that money.
Now, that may upset some people and if anyone wants to send in an article defending him by all means do and it will be published.
But that will probably not happen simply because the number of fans defending Ozil is declining rapidly and those that do defend him struggle to justify his wages and inclusion in the team.
Now, if Ceballos ends up taking Ozil’s place on a permanent basis I will be over the moon.
Not because I am vindictive and want to see Ozil sidelined because I do not like him but because I want what is best for Arsenal and if we have a player that can finally see Ozil gone then that must be welcomed by everyone surely.
Because it means the team is better for it, because it means that we have a player in a position that is effective and because we will have a player with the right attitude, the Arsenal attitude that has been lacking for so long with Ozil.
It also means that Ceballos himself will have been a success and if that happens it would surely increase the chances of him wanting to stay in London with Arsenal on a permanent basis and that would be a win win for everyone.
Well, maybe not Ozil.
