Arsenal have completed the loan signing of midfielder Dani Ceballos from Real Madrid,with the 22-year-old moving to London for the 2019-20 season.
Ceballos, who joined Madrid from Real Betis in 2017, has opted to go out on loan as he still believes he can make his Real career a success in future.
Tottenham showed interest in signing the midfielder but pulled out after Madrid rejected an option to buy, leaving Arsenal free to sign Ceballos and link up with compatriot Unai Emery in north London.
