Arsenal blow following the latest update on Dani Ceballos

Arsenal has been dealt a blow in their bid to bring back Dani Ceballos for the new season after it emerged that he wants to return to his boyhood club, Real Betis.

The Spaniard spent last season on loan at Arsenal and he was one of the key players as Mikel Arteta helped the Gunners win the FA Cup.

The Spaniard had initially struggled to earn a place in the starting XI under Arteta, but he would eventually prove to be one of the most attentive members of the team as he delivered what the manager wanted.

The highlight of his stay at the Emirates, apart from winning the FA Cup, is scoring the winning goal in the FA Cup quarter-finals against Sheffield United.

Arsenal is hoping to bring him back again for another loan deal so that he can build on his time with them, but it seems that his heart is elsewhere.

Mundo Deportivo claims that Ceballos wants a return to Real Betis and he has made that known to Real Madrid.

It may, however, be difficult to pull off because the report claims that Betis will have to offload some of their players before they can afford to sign him as well as meet his wage demands.

    More like a good news to me… Prove his worth last season but i doubt hes dey type of midfield arsenal need right now… Same playing style with mo elneny. With good coaching elneny can be what cebalos wish to be.
    lets developed our own young guns instead of developing for other clubs to benefit

      We need that creativity in midfield. We should bid 20m Pounds for Thiago Alcantara. The season is about to start. It seems Madrid won’t send Ceballos on loan to Arsenal. We need to get the players we need on time. Thiago is top quality

    This was the story about 10 days ago, yet Arteta says he wants to stay with Arsenal! Who do we believe?

    I do wish The Arsenal would just say to the player and RM, “here’s our value for another season loan, with a clause to buy at a certain price at the end of the season – take it or leave it!!”

    I think RM and the player are messing about with us and we should take a stand.
    If they keep stalling, then go out for Courtinho, fed up with being treated as fodder for spanish clubs.

    Please go to Betis! He’s an ok player but not what we need. Madrid don’t want him, couldn’t get near the team… Believe if we signed him perm or on loan by December he would not be in the team of fans would be calling for him to be gone!
