Arsenal are reportedly deemed to have won the race to secure the signature of Dani Ceballos on a temporary basis from Real Madrid this summer.
The 22-year-old has been with the Madrid giants for the past two seasons but he has struggled to nail a regular role with just 34 appearances in all competitions.
A recent report from AS suggested that Ceballos could part ways with Los Blancos on a temporary basis and the same publication has now revealed that he is close to heading to the Premier League with Arsenal.
The Gunners are currently not in a position to spend substantial fees on any players with a restricted £45m pre-sales budget but AS claims that they could still sign Ceballos permanently with a buy option likely to be included.
Aside from Ceballos, Los Blancos are prepared to sanction the departures of eight other players during the transfer window and that includes the likes of Marcelo, Gareth Bale, Lucas Vazquez and Mariano Diaz.
