Arsenal, Betis and an unnamed English club interested in signing Ceballos on loan

Arsenal, Real Betis and an unnamed Premier League club are interested in signing Dani Ceballos on loan, according to Spanish media outlet Marca.

Dani Ceballos is a graduate of the Betis academy and played for the first team for three years before signing for Real Madrid in 2017. He scored seven goals and provided nine assists in 105 appearances for Betis. 

Antonio Cordon, the new sporting director of Real Betis is drawing up plans for the upcoming transfer window which is seen as a crucial period for the Andalusian club. Ceballos is reportedly on the list of players the club would like to sign. The Betis sporting director spoke about the player to Spanish radio station Onda Cero. He said:

“We all know how good a player Ceballos is, we know his past and he’s a very interesting player. Going forward, we’re going to have a look at our staff, our squad and how we’re going to play.”

He spoke further about the on-loan Arsenal midfielder to Spanish radio station El Laguero. He said:

“He’s already been here and no one will forget his quality and attributes. He’s a player any team would be interested in.”

The Spanish club have been in contact with the 23 year old throughout the season but face competition from Arsenal who are also keen to secure a loan for the player for another season as well as another big Premier League club who are willing to offer Ceballos a significant pay rise. 

The Spanish midfielder is waiting to see what kind of deal Betis offer him before making a decision on his future. Any move for the player will depend on whether Betis head coach Manuel Pellegrini sees him as an important part of his plans for next season. 

Ceballos is also believed to be open to extending his stay in North London and there is much speculation that a move to secure a new loan for the player is almost complete. 

The Andalusian club’s ability to fund a deal for Ceballos is in question due to the financial implications of the pandemic. The La Liga has imposed financial limits on clubs for the upcoming season due to the coronavirus.
