Arsenal midfielder Ceballos keen to avoid Cazorla comparisons

Arsenal midfielder Dani Ceballos is keen to avoid comparisons with Santi Cazorla.

Cazorla, now with Villarreal, played for the club between 2012-2018, making 180 appearances before a serious injury cruelly ended his Arsenal career, and he is remembered fondly by supporters for his creativity and passing ability.

One fan posted a cartoon on social media which shows them together and Ceballos wearing a crown.

Responding to the post, however, Ceballos said: "The king is still Santi Cazorla, I still have a lot to learn to become like him."
