English Premier League club Arsenal will still face a major challenge in keeping Dani Ceballos at the club on a permanent deal despite their chances.

Dani Ceballos has been at Arsenal for the last year on a loan deal and that is expected to run out at the end of the season. Mikel Arteta has been impressed with the performance of the star player since the restart of the season and has favoured him to stay on a permanent deal.

With claims that his parent club, Real Madrid are opened to a deal as they seek to cash in from the player’s sale, Arsenal are considering the option and are expected to approach the La Liga champions in the coming weeks.

The Gunners now have a major challenge as Manchester City have indicated an interest in Dani Ceballos and are set to approach Real Madrid for a deal in this summer window.

It is expected that Man City will submit a better deal for Dani Ceballo and that could be a factor to be considered by the player and the club.

This means the chances of having Dani Ceballos at the Emirates Stadium in the coming season is no longer certain.
