Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has reportedly talked Arsenal to try to complete the permanent transfer of midfielder Dani Ceballos.
The Spain international midfielder is on loan at the Emirates Stadium this campaign and has had some good moments, though it’s been a miserable season for Arsenal overall.
It remains to be seen how that might affect the Gunners’ plans for Dani Ceballos, but Don Balon report that Florentino Perez is eager to offload him to the north London club on a permanent deal.
The report also explains that Real head coach Zinedine Zidane is not a fan of Dani Ceballos, with the pair having a weak relationship from their time working together.
This could end up backfiring on the French tactician as Dani Ceballos looks a talented player with a big future, but Arsenal fans could be pleased indeed if he does end up overlooking the 23-year-old midfielder.
The Gunners did well to secure this loan signing, and even if he’s been slow to settle under challenging circumstances this campaign, a permanent deal could be a wise long-term investment for the club.
