Arsenal aim to sign Real Madrid midfielder Ceballos on-loan

Arsenal will aim to sign Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos on-loan.

The Mirror says Arsenal are confident of completing a loan deal for Ceballos - and beating Tottenham to a second summer signing.

Gunners boss Unai Emery has targeted Ceballos to join Arsenal on a one-year loan deal to bolster his squad and become a much-needed addition to his midfield.

They have held lengthy talks with Real Madrid as well as Ceballos and his advisers and are now very hopeful of getting a deal over the line.

That would be a major coup as Tottenham have also been in the running for the 22-year-old Spanish midfielder as Mauricio Pochettino is a big admirer.

It also comes after Arsenal beat Tottenham to the signing of St Etienne's teenage defender William Saliba as the 18-year-old centre half is due to undergo a medical and join in a £27m deal.
