Hector Bellerin says Dani Ceballos is one of the best players that the Arsenal defender has encountered in his career.

The Gunners signed Ceballos in a season-long loan deal from La Liga giants Real Madrid in the summer transfer window.

Arsenal won the competitive race to sign Ceballos after the 23-year-old starred in Spain’s success at the European Under-21 championship this summer.

Unai Emery handed Ceballos his full debut in a 2-1 victory over Burnley at The Emirates last weekend for Arsenal’s second fixture of the Premier League season.

Ceballos produced a man-of-the-match performance in the middle of the park, creating the assist for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s winner in the second half.

And Arsenal defender Bellerin has admitted that he has been impressed with what he has seen from Ceballos so far this term.

“I think Dani’s one of the best players I’ve seen in my career,” Bellerin told Arsenal’s website.

“I’ve played with him since we were like 18 or 19 years old. We’ve played in the under-21s, we get on really well off the pitch.

“He’s a great player, I think he’s going to be a great addition to the team and the Premier League is going to be very different to any other league, but he’s shown in training that he’s ready for it.

“He’s up for it and he’s a player who will go through thick and thin to do the best for his team. He’s got a great heart and he plays for everyone around him. I think he’s a great addition.”

Ceballos was drafted into the Arsenal team to help fill the void left by Aaron Ramsey after the Wales international moved to Juventus on a free transfer this summer.

Arsenal were the busiest of the top six clubs in the Premier League in the summer following the arrivals of Gabriel Martinelli, William Saliba, Ceballos, Nicolas Pepe, Kieran Tierney and David Luiz.

The Gunners are looking to avoid finishing outside the top four for the fourth successive season.
