    Date published: Thursday 27th August 2020 8:58

    Arsenal look set to miss out on the permanent signing of Dani Ceballos after reports in Spain said he had decided on a move elsewhere.

    Ceballos spent the 2019-20 season on loan at Arsenal from Real Madrid. In total, he made 35 appearances in all competitions, featuring heavily in the last month of the season.

    Reports have indicated that Arsenal want to extend his loan for another year. With no future back in Madrid, the chance for continuity under Mikel Arteta could appeal to the Spaniard.

    However, it was reported earlier this week that Ceballos could wait to see if boyhood club Real Betis come in for him.

    Ceballos came through the youth ranks at Betis. He spent three full seasons in their first team before joining Madrid in 2017.

    And, according to Mundo Deportivo, his affection for the club has never passed. They claim Ceballos has now made it clear to Real Madrid he only wants to move back to his hometown club. He feels his chances of impressing Zinedine Zidane are over and he he will push for the move.

    Furthermore, the report claims Ceballos kept in regular contact with officials at Betis throughout his time at Arsenal. As such, teeling in the Spanish media is that Ceballos’ next move will be to Betis, and Betis only.

    When asked about Ceballos’ future on Thursday, Arteta said: “Well, we have some talks and Dani knows really well what I think about him.


    “He was pretty clear with me as well that his intention was to remain with us. But obviously Real Madrid is involved and I don’t know yet what they want to do with the player.

    “But he’s a player that we are interested in because we really saw, in the last few months of the season, what he is capable of bringing to us.”

    However, Ceballos played the best football at Betis. As a result, it’s claimed he feels that would be the best way to get his career fully back on track. While grateful to Arsenal, where he won the FA Cup, his time in London now appears over.



    Arsenal, however, may soon be bringing in another quality midfielder in the shape of Philippe Coutinho.

    According to reports in Spain, he will inform Ronald Koeman he wants a move to Arsenal when he holds talks on his future.

    Arteta has already held talks over a prospective deal with his agent Kia Joorabchian.

    As per the report, Arteta has made it clear he wants to bring Coutinho to the club. Furthermore, Sport claims the Gunners are willing to pay Coutinho £200,000 a week were he to switch to Arsenal.

    With Barcelona chiefs willing to listen to offers, the only issue for Arsenal remains the fee.
