Arsenal Head of Football, Raul Sanllehi has revealed why the club signed Dani Ceballos from Real Madrid.
Sanllehi explained that the North London club signed the Spain international because of the position he plays and the way he comes out with the ball.
Ceballos joined the Gunners on loan from Real Madrid on Thursday.
“We’re very pleased and proud to get Ceballos done, many top clubs in Europe wanted this player,” Sanllehi was quoted by Metro UK as saying.
“We like the player because of the position he plays and the way he comes out with the ball. Cabellos is one of the top young players in Europe.
“He is a Real Madrid player and I say that with pain, because when I was at Barca I tried to sign him.
“He wasn’t getting enough game time with Zidane, but we have a good relationship with the club and I knew the player, so we saw this as a win-win for us and Real Madrid.
“He is fanatical about football. I can tell you that for the last two weeks he has been studying Arsenal and every player and this was part of why we brought him in. He is a loan player but he has a big commitment.”
