Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos is set to be announced as an Arsenal player imminently, as the Spaniard is already in London to make his loan move official.
Santos claims the two clubs should make the move official this afternoon, and Rodriguez says the transfer ‘is about to close’.
This is further to reliable Spanish journalist Edu Pidal writing on Monday that Ceballos could travel to London today, as he prepares to complete a season-long loan.

It seems only a matter of time now until the transfer is officially announced.
Arsenal don’t have an option to buy in the player’s contract, but they have agreed with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez to talk about a permanent move at the end of the season, according to Fabrizio Romano.
That was the situation with Chelsea and Mateo Kovacic last season, and they ended up signing him permanently this summer. Whilst that doesn’t mean a permanent move is guaranteed for Ceballos, it’s certainly a possibility.
