Dani Ceballos wants to stay at Arsenal permanently after being told he has no future at Real Madrid.
According to reports in Spain, as cited on 90min, the Gunners have been handed a huge transfer boost as they eye a permanent deal to land the midfielder.
After talks with Real, Ceballos has been given a clear update on his future and now it’s time for Arsenal to make a decision.

The Gunners would be foolish to snub a permanent move to sign Ceballos. In the 23-year-old they have one of the finest young midfielders in Europe, who has the potential to grow into a figurehead within this team.
The report claims that a deal could be struck for a fee in the region of £34 million next summer – a bargain in the current market.
Averaging a 7.27 WhoScored rating this season, Ceballos has been impressing both on and off the pitch since joining Arsenal on loan – becoming a firm favourite in the eyes of supporters.
The one area that Arsenal have lacked this season is a truly creative midfield and with an 89% pass success rate this season in the Premier League, Ceballos would go some way to solving that problem.
He has adapted quickly to the demands of Premier League football and with more time, he’ll surely only go on to become even better.
