Arsenal supporters have been discussing what kind of impact Mikel Arteta might have on Dani Ceballos.
The Spanish midfielder was today pictured back in full training, having been sidelined since early November.
Ceballos sustained a hamstring injury against Vitoria in the Europa League, and has missed a total of nine matches.
He recently posted on Instagram to let fans know that he was targeting a return on Boxing Day, with Bournemouth Arsenal’s opponents.
And it would seem he is on course to have some kind of involvement at the Vitality Stadium.
Under Unai Emery, Ceballos was a regular in the side, making 17 appearances for the former Paris Saint-Germain manager.
Several Arsenal fans have been wondering how Ceballos might be affected with Arteta now at the helm.
Obviously the two can be compared, with Arteta having been a central midfield player for the Gunners earlier this decade.

Following Arsenal’s post of Ceballos being back in training, many couldn’t contain their excitement about the prospect of him being mentored by Arteta:
Arteta will get more out of him than Emery did. I hope
