Ceballos has won Arteta over in the months since, impressing with his effort and attitude in training.

Arteta said: “I am really satisfied with him. I really like how much that he likes to play football, the passion he puts into every training session and in every game. His festivities, whether he is on the pitch or on the bench, that he puts his life involved with it.
