Arsenal In Talks To Sign Real Madrid Midfielder

Europa League runners-up Arsenal are in talks with Real Madrid to sign Spanish midfielder Dani Ceballos.

Naija News gathered that Tottenham Hotspur are also in the running to sign the highly-rated midfielder.

However, The Gunners looks to be front-runners in the race to sign the 22-year-old and talks are progressing over a season-long loan.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery is a fan of Ceballos, who wants to get out of Madrid to secure regular first-team football.

Ceballos joined Real Madrid for £15 million ($19m) in 2017 from Real Betis but has struggled to nail down a regular starting spot at the Bernabeu.

The Spanish outfit are reluctant to lose him on a permanent basis, however, which is why a loan move to the Emirates looks the likely outcome from the talks between the two clubs.

Arsenal would have to pay a loan fee to take him for the season, while also covering his wages – which are thought to be around £2.7m ($3.3m) a year.
