Arsenal ‘agree’ Real Madrid Dani Ceballos deal
Arsenal and Real Madrid fans can expect to see official confirmation of the deal soon.
As confirmed by the BBC’s David Ornstein on Monday night, Arsenal are on the verge of signing Dani Ceballos.
The BBC claim that the loan deal between the Gunners and Los Blancos is agreed:
Arsenal have reached an agreement to sign Real Madrid and Spain midfielder Dani Ceballos on loan for the 2019-20 campaign.

Have Arsenal agreed an option to sign Dani Ceballos permanently?
That issue has been discussed by Italian reporter Fabrizio Romano.
Unfortunately for Arsenal fans, the club appear to have failed to secure any option on Ceballos. Romano reports:
Real Madrid are ready to accept a simple loan.
No official buy option, but Florentino Perez himself promised to Arsenal they’ll speak on June 2020 about the situation of Ceballos and a possible bid to sign him permanently.

Celtic & Kieran Tierney
Are Arsenal set to miss out on signing Celtic’s Kieran Tierney?
Yes, say The Herald on Tuesday.
Despite reports claiming that Arsenal are lining up a third bid for the Scottish defender, The Herald now report that Tierney is unlikely to switch to the Emirates Stadium:
Kieran Tierney’s proposed move to Arsenal appears off after the London side failed in another attempt to sign the 22-year-old fullback.
Sources close to the London side have claimed that Arsenal are now set to walk away from negotiations and turn their attention elsewhere as they seek to further bolster their side.
