Arsenal know how much they must pay to sign Dani Ceballos permanently

Arsenal has reportedly been told to pay £36 million if they want to sign Dani Ceballos permanently

The Gunners took the Spaniard on loan from Real Madrid last summer and he made an instant impact when he started the campaign with a bang in his first game against Burnley.

He was, however, struck down with an injury and struggled to break into the side under Mikel Arteta with the Spanish manager demanding far more from him.

He, however, won his place back in the team after impressing Arteta in their training camp in Dubai and the Gunners appear prepared to keep him beyond this season.

Ceballos considered leaving the Emirates in the winter but admitted that the fan’s affection after they created a song for him made him change his mind.

Mikel Arteta has insisted that the Gunners aren’t in negotiation with Real Madrid over his permanent transfer yet, but Sun Sport is claiming that Arsenal can get their man if they can fork out £36 million in the summer.

This summer is expected to be one of the club’s most important in a long time, and Arteta will be hoping that Arsenal will back him to land Ceballos permanently when the next transfer window opens.

  1. Ceballos is a good player but he’s style is to much like Mesut Ozil’s but not as good and l would rather keep Mesut than pay Real Madrid £ 36 million to buy another playmaker,when we could put the money towards buying Dayot Upamecano who l think we will all agree is more important to Arsenal than Ceballos next season.

  2. Done nothing to warrant spending that kind of money on him. 15/20 at most for a player who may always struggle with the intensity of the league.

  3. If he can work on releasing the ball quickly and spotting player’s runs, then £36m would be a steal in today’s transfer market.

  4. Now I know some will say that I put too much faith in what it is reported coaches/managers/players say, but if MA is insisting that we are not in negotiations with Madrid yet, I believe him completely….why would Madrid come out with a price, if we were doing so?

    Seems to me, they want other clubs to come in, as we are biding our time on making a decision.

    1. YES Ken I much agree. I suspect AFC and Real are involved in a poker game over the price but we are unlikely to buy a better player in that price bracket and we will not be spending more on a new midfielder, I feel sure. My take is that I would like to keep Ceballos at the right price, provided MA thinks it the right course but not at a huge overspend. To me, as you well know, he is far more useful than OZIL whom I HAVE long considered an expensive passenger. I maintain my long held view that AFC would love to move him on but his salary prevents this. He is chosen despite, not because of his lack of goals and assists and his obvious laziness. We are hardly blessed with a huge choice of other creative midfielders, Ozil and Ceballos apart. He glides through games looking elegant and moving around the pitch with calm-far too much calm- and is just not effective as a game changer, as he used to be way back when he first came. Please don’ t ONCE AGAIN remind me that MA has been picking him of late; I AM FULLY AWARE. BUT PLEASE NOTE MY OWN REASONS WHY THAT IS SO.

      In any case it is all about next season now, if and when it begins. I would not bet on any Prem football even in August and this season has finished all but officially ALREADY.
      If the government do soon bring in enforced house isolation for all over 70’s I will bless my lucky stars that I am still, just, allowed out of the house. How will you manage though and I GENUINELY SEND MY WARMEST BEST WISHES TO YOU AND ALL YOUR LOVED ONES.

      1. Arteta doesn’t rate Ceballos, Martinelli, and Maitland-Niles. I dont think that the deal will go through

        1. Please.. How come Arteta doesn’t rate Martinelli’? I don’t believe that!

          This should be a topic.!

  5. Will be the worst mistake to not sign him he’s being compared with ozil even though he’s not getting the tole ozil play just shows people here don’t know soccer. Dani with the ball at his feet at 23 this good give him more time to develop and see so it’s a no brainer that we should make the deal permanent yesterday already. His energy tracking back ball retention how he keeps the ball under pressure how he spots a pass and so much more and we should let the player pass I don’t know anymore
