Can Dani Ceballos work his way back into the Arsenal team?

    According to reports, Dani Ceballos had been trying to force
    his way out of Arsenal this month before backing down when the club stood their
    ground in the closing days of the winter transfer window.

    Gunners fans
    had been excited back in August when the club completed a season-long loan from
    Real Madrid for the 23-year-old.

    However, the
    Spanish international has been hindered by injuries during his time in North
    London and his latest attempt to get a move away from the club will not have
    gone down with manager Mikel Arteta.

    The playmakers
    technique should be able to earn him a place in Arsenal’s starting lineup on a
    regular basis, but it’s not worked out so far for Ceballos. What’s made things
    worse is Mesut Ozil finding his form again since Arteta replaced Unai Emery
    around Christmas.

    Ozil is a
    popular player among Arsenal fans, not to forget he was a part of Joachim Low’s
    German national team that won the 2014 World Cup.

    Dani Ceballos
    has been restricted to just seven starts and a further four substitute
    appearances from a possible 24 Premier League games so far this season. His
    last Premier League appearance was a 1-1 draw at home to Wolverhampton
    Wanderers on 2 November.

    He’s only been
    handed two starts in the UEFA Europa League group stage too – a competition
    that the Premier League side have handed a number of fringe players start to
    prove themselves. This has proved very beneficial to Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli
    and Joe Willock, who have gone on to earn plenty of domestic league action
    following their performances in Europe.

    Ceballos’ sole
    goal for Arsenal so far came during a 4-0 win over Standard Liege in the Europa
    League back in October, but his career has not kicked on from there. He has
    just two assists to his name too – both coming in a 2-1 win over Burnley in the
    second game of the season.

    The midfielder
    looks far short of the confident player who was excellent at the UEFA Euro
    under-21 championships over the summer, in which he scored twice and assisted
    two more in five appearances as Spain won the tournament.

    He’s even been
    able to handle his own at Real Madrid in the past, prior to Zinedine Zidane
    being rehired and seemingly not being a fan of the player. Hence the loan deal.

    Whether Mikel
    Arteta will give Dani Ceballos another chance at Arsenal remains to be seen,
    but I am confident Arsenal fans will not give up on the player between now and
    May. Just like a number of Arsenal blogs who continue to keep the faith in the
    player. We sure know what he’s capable of, it’s now up to the player and the
    manager to start proving that on the pitch.
