According to a report in The Mirror, Arsenal are edging closer to completing a season-loan deal for Real Madrid midfielder Dani Cabellos.

It is suggested that Gunners boss Unai Emery is desperate to add more numbers to his midfield and is keen on the 22-year-old (Marca).

Ceballos, who was overlooked by Zinedine Zidane in several big games last season, was one of the stars of Spain’s successful European U21 Championship campaign.

He has recently revealed his desire to play regularly next season to continue his development (Metro).

It is suggested that Arsenal have held lengthy talks with Real Madrid as well as Ceballos’s representatives and are confident of getting the deal over the line soon.

The report claims that Mauricio Pochettino is also a big fan of the youngster and that Spurs have also been in discussion with Madrid over his signing.

The impending arrival of Ceballos means that Arsenal look set to do the double over Spurs with the Gunners also beating their North London rivals to the signing of St Etienne defender William Saliba (The Mirror).

Meanwhile, other reports suggest that Spurs are close to an agreement with Real Betis for the transfer of Giovani Lo Celso (Estadio Deportivo).

Spurs Web Opinion

Ceballos’ talent is there for all to see and he will be a brilliant addition for Arsenal if they get the deal over the line. However, one has to question the wisdom of buying him if the deal does not come with an option to buy. We at Spurs Web think Tottenham should walk away from the deal if Madrid only want to loan him for one season.
