Zidane to keep hold of Ceballos?

Arsenal have received a potential transfer blow with Real Madrid prepared to keep hold of Dani Ceballos for the forthcoming season.

The Spain international spent the 2019/2020 campaign on loan with the Gunners and was hugely impressive during the backend of the season where he formed a solid partnership alongside Granit Xhaka.

Ceballos did not make much of an impression in an attacking point of view with just two goals and two assists across all competitions, but he managed to impress with the ability to make key interceptions in the centre of the park.

It was believed that the Gunners were close to signing him on a temporary basis for another season but AS claims that manager Zinedine Zidane is now prepared to reintegrate the midfielder into his plans for next term.

Ceballos has previously cited that he wants regular first-team football in the lead up to the European Championships next summer. He was linked with a possible return to hometown club Real Betis earlier this year.
