Dani Ceballos to leave Arsenal this month?

Ceballos set for Arsenal exit?

Spanish midfielder Dani Ceballos has stated his ambition to part ways with Arsenal this month following the lack of playing time under manager Mikel Arteta.

Ceballos joined the Gunners on a season-long loan from Real Madrid last summer and he managed 17 appearances during the first half of the season before picking up a hamstring injury in December.

During this period, the club have changed managers with Arteta replacing Unai Emery as the permanent head coach and the Spaniard has resisted the prospect of fielding Ceballos in any competition.

According to Cadena SER, the 23-year-old is keen to pursue a fresh challenge elsewhere as he is worried that he could miss out on the Spain squad for the European Championship this summer.

There is no recall clause inserted into his temporary contract at the moment but he is hopeful that Los Blancos can negotiate the termination of the deal by compensating the Gunners with part of the loan fee paid last summer.
