It’s no secret that Arsenal have had a poor season this year and the Gunners in the Transfer Tavern are hoping for many improvements, and possibly successes this time next year.
Arsenal looked a damaged side at times this season and their lack of consistency has proven to be very troublesome as the Gunners are far adrift of the top four race. A player who usually brings so much to the Emirates is Santi Cazorla but injuries have set the Spaniard back on numerous occasions over the last few years, damaging the career he has left at Arsenal.
As much as they wouldn’t want to, it maybe time to start looking past Santi Cazorla and target a new signing capable of being his successor. Our punters believe a strong candidate for this role would be Real Madrid’s Dani Ceballos, who is valued at £10.80 million on Transfermarkt. Although the 21-year-old isn’t a well-recognised name for Los Blancos, this season since joining in the summer from Real Betis, has seen Ceballos feature in 19 games.
During those games, he has also added two goals but his contribution to the side has been eye-catching and he should deserve a chance at first team football for a team like Arsenal. With the Gunners likely to have a clear-out of their own this summer, quality in the centre of midfield has been hard to come by but is something that the addition of Dani Ceballos would fix.
With years ahead of him now, this move is appealing for the present and future, with Ceballos showing the potential of having a great career ahead of him.
