Arsenal are set to face competition from three European clubs as they seek to re-sign Daniel Ceballos on another loan deal from Real Madrid.

The Spaniard has been a regular under Mikel Arteta since the winter break in February and he has formed an impressive partnership alongside Granit Xhaka in the centre of the park.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta has already opened the door for the club to retain his services next term, but it appears that they may not be able to afford a permanent deal.

Instead, the club may look to re-sign him on loan for the second season running but they are set to face competition from the likes of AC Milan, Valencia and Real Betis, according to ESPN.

Ceballos is said to be out-of-favour under Zinedine Zidane and it is reported that the Gunners' prospects of re-signing him may depend on whether they are willing to negotiate a mandatory buy clause next summer.

Ceballos still has three years remaining on his Los Blancos contract.
