Philippe Senderos has suggested to Marca that Real Madrid loanee Dani Ceballos should remain at Arsenal this summer as he would adapt to the Premier League under the guidance of manager Mikel Arteta.
Ceballos, 23, joined Arsenal on loan last summer from Real Madrid but has since struggled to have an enormous impact. He has played just 24 times in all competitions, missing 11 matches due to a muscle problem.
The Spain international is expected to return to Zinedine Zidane’s side this summer when his loan expires. The Express claim Arsenal would have to splash a whopping £36million to sign Ceballos on a permanent basis this summer.
Former Arsenal defender Senderos has claimed that Ceballos should remain in north London this summer and complete a permanent move to the Emirates, because the midfielder – under Arteta – would adapt to the Premier League.
TBR’s view – Arsenal should look elsewhere than Ceballos
The physical, fast-paced Premier League simply does not suit Ceballos. The Real Madrid ace is more suited a technically-based style of football, where he would be given time to shine in the middle of the park – rather than faving a battle.
The Serie A would be ideal for Ceballos, where midfielders dictate the tempo of play and are given space to impress. Senderos’ claim may be true, but Arsenal themselves should look elsewhere than a permanent move for Ceballos.
