Dani Ceballos will spend this season at Arsenal before returning to Real Madrid. The Gunners agreed a 12-month loan spell with Los Blancos over the midfielder. However, Jose Mourinho is convinced the north Londoners already have players with similar qualities – Mkhitaryan and Ozil.
The Portuguese questions the necessity of signing another player of the same type:
“Ceballos, I think they have other Ceballos’ in the squad. He’s a good player but I think they have other Ceballos’.
“When I see Mkhitaryan, Ozil, Ceballos, they can play in different positions on the pitch and very similar characteristics.”
According to reports the Gunners have agreed to pay as much as £15m (in wages plus a loan fee) for the 23-year-old.
