‘Baller’, ‘Should’ve signed’: Some Tottenham fans react as 23-year-old shines for PL side

Tottenham Hotspur were reportedly interested in Arsenal’s on-loan midfielder Dani Ceballos in the summer – and Spurs fans have reacted on Twitter after the Spaniard starred during his first start for the Gunners.

The Sun claimed in July that 23-year-old Ceballos joined Arsenal over moving to the Gunners’ north London rivals Tottenham because he was guaranteed more game time at The Emirates – while Spurs could not offer him a regular start.

Ceballos was only used as a substitute against Newcastle in Arsenal’s first game, but Unai Emery opted to throw him in from the off on Saturday afternoon – as The Gunners played host to Burnley.

The Real Madrid loanee was in inspired form from the middle of the park, laying on both assists as Arsenal earned a narrow 2-1 win against a brave Burnley. Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang both netted.

Spurs did add to the middle of the park in the summer, in the form of club-record signing Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon. Giovani Lo Celso was finally signed, but he is likely to play more forward.

Tottenham fans reacted to the news that Ceballos had starred for Arsenal on Saturday, after being linked with the midfielder for much of the window before Arsenal landed the Spain international.
