Arsenal make decision on Dani Ceballos loan extension amid coronavirus uncertainty – Irish Mirror
Arsenal are looking to extend Dani Ceballos’ loan from Real Madrid beyond the end of June as they plan for a prolonged season.
The Spaniard headed to the Emirates at the start of the season and is due to return to Madrid at the end of the campaign.
But with the Premier League’s fixture list so far undecided due to thecoronaviruspandemic the Gunners are looking to ensure they keep hold of the playmaker.
Ceballos has previously suggested he wanted to return to Los Blancos earlier than planned, but Mikel Arteta urged his compatriot to fight for his place.
He said earlier this season: “I heard of all of those things [speculation about a move] but I don’t have a comment.
“He needs to get back to fitness and fight for his place. After that, I will make the selection that I feel is best for the team.”
The Gunners do not have an option to purchase Ceballos at the end of the season, which was at the player’s request according to theEvening Standard.
But senior officials in north London do not anticipate Madrid having any issues with the 23-year-old extending his stay.
