Dani Ceballos names Arsenal’s best player & Joe Willock’s new contract length revealed

Dani Ceballos names Arsenal’s best player

When Arsenal signed Dani Ceballos on loan from Real Madrid, some had doubts over the deal.

While Ceballos was always a gifted player, Arsenal failed to secure an option to sign the Spaniard at the end of the deal.

Cynics suggested that if Ceballos started the season poorly, Unai Emery could look elsewhere with his midfield picks.

However, Ceballos has started the campaign brightly.

Although he’s yet to fully cement a starting place, Ceballos already has two assists this season.

On Thursday, the Real Madrid loanee has given a new interview with the Guardian.

Ceballos drew a comparison between Los Blancos and the Gunners, saying:

I’ve hardly noticed any difference in size between Real Madrid and Arsenal. And the fans are very passionate, they love the players.

Ceballos also named Arsenal’s best player:

We’ve got a very good, compact side and the three up front really make the difference.

You can compare [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang to Cristiano [Ronaldo] when he was at Madrid in the sense that he plays close to the goal he lives for scoring. He’s very important for us, fundamental.

[Nicolas] Pépé is very direct. And [Alexandre] Lacazette, for me, is the best player: he understands the game perfectly and, if he’s 100%, he’s going to give us so much.

Joe Willock’s new contract length revealed

On Thursday, Arsenal have confirmed that Joe Willock has agreed a new deal.

Willock started Arsenal’s first three Premier League matches this season.

Arsenal failed to confirm specific details about the length of Willock’s new deal.

However, according to reports, the 20-year-old will remain under contract until 2023.
