David Ornstein claims summer signing is now ‘unhappy’ at Arsenal
Former BBC journalist David Ornstein has revealed that one of the Gunners’ signings from last summer’s transfer window is currently ‘pretty unhappy’ about his situation at the club.
A year after the appointment of Unai Emery, Arsenal spent heavily in the transfer market as they backed the Spaniard to strengthen the squad for a possible return to the Champions League.
One of the players whom the former Arsenal boss signed was Dani Ceballos, as the Gunners looked for more options in midfield after the exit of Aaron Ramsey.
Ceballos, who is earning £60,000-a-week wages (Express), was in impressive form during the first couple of weeks of the season but the Spaniard has now lost his place in the starting eleven after being troubled by injuries.
The midfielder recently returned to training after spending a while on the sidelines, but it appears as though he might not be too keen on remaining at Arsenal.
According to David Ornstein, the 23-year-old, who is on loan from Real Madrid, is currently ‘unhappy’ about his situation at the club.
“There have also been suggestions about [Arsenal signing] a midfielder,” Ornstein said, speaking on The Athletic’s Transfer Daily podcast
“With the loan move that brought Dani Ceballos in from Real Madrid not working out quite as well as expected, or as well as it looked it would prove at the beginning of his loan. He’s also suffering from injuries too.
“I’ve been told that [Ceballos is] pretty unhappy about the situation as well. So perhaps watch this space on a midfielder.”
