Dani Ceballos is still making life dramatic in the transfer window but the drama could all be over soon.

The Spaniard appears to be one for the theatrics. A week ago, Dani Ceballos publicised his heart’s desire to return back to his boyhood club, Real Betis. This was following reports his parent club was unwilling to endorse a loan move back to the Emirates, preferring a permanent deal rather.

"Dani Ceballos ‘asks Real Madrid to let him return to boyhood club Real Betis this summer’ after spending last season on loan at Arsenal. Ceballos is eager to secure a return to the club where he started his career. There had been suggestions he could return to Arsenal following his loan spell.

Real Madrid is looking to reinforce under Zidane and wants to collect enough funds in a time the market is the toughest to manoeuvre around in. They do not want to rest on their La Liga winning campaign and build a strong squad in their defence of it. Once the news broke, Arsenal’s boss Mikel Arteta got on the phone with the player, asking him to please rather consider the switch to Arsenal.

More from Arsenal

Move on a week from the Real Betis news and it appears the words from the London boss were too compelling to turn down. Now the club is close on getting him back to North London to join up with the Gunners for one more rodeo.

"Dani Ceballos is poised to rejoin Arsenal on a season-long loan from Real Madrid this week after spending the 2019-20 campaign at the Emirates Stadium. It is understood that the Arsenal head coach, Mikel Arteta, called the 24-year-old to convince him it would be best for him to return to the Premier League for another year.

It hasn’t always been smooth sailing for Dani during his time in England but after he got a clear picture of what Arteta was bringing to the fold, he couldn’t help but enjoy the rest of his stay.

He made 37 appearances for Arsenal across all competitions featuring in the Premier League, FA Cup, EFL Cup, and Europa League. He managed a small tally of two goals and two assists but was undoubtedly an important cog to the ticking Arsenal.

The Gunners prefer to do deals with low spending on payments while gaining maximum returns in the process. With Dani Ceballos, they know this will be the case having worked with him already last season.
