Arsenal receive boost in signing 23-year-old midfielder on a permanent deal: report

Arsenal have received a boost in signing Dani Ceballos on a permanent basis with the Spanish midfielder reluctant to return to Real Madrid at the end of the season.

The Spain international was the Gunners’ second purchase of the summer transfer window after he arrived from Los Blancos on a season-long loan agreement.

Ceballos made a bright beginning to his Gunners career with a couple of assists in his home league debut against Burnley but he has since struggled to find the same level of consistency.

Still, the Spaniard has remained an important player under Unai Emery and he has played in every league game barring the Leicester City clash, where he was sidelined with a hamstring problem.

According to AS, as reported by The Sun, the Gunners have received a boost in landing the midfielder’s signature on a permanent deal, considering Ceballos does not want to return to Los Blancos.

It is added that the 23-year-old has a poor relationship with manager Zinedine Zidane and he may struggle for playing time, should he opt for a comeback with Los Blancos.

Ceballos has impressed with his quick transition of play from the midfield but of late, he has not been able to make the penetration with the ball in an attacking point of view.

Still, he has impressed in his maiden Premier League campaign and it remains to be seen whether the Gunners are offered with the chance to sign him permanently in either January or at the end of the campaign.
