Real Madrid loanee Dani Ceballos has hinted at his plans for the future in the midst of a purple patch at Arsenal
Arrived at the Emirates Stadium on a season-long loan, the 23-year-old has immediately grasped the opportunity of playing regular first-team football, gaining plaudits far and wide for his performance in the Premier League so far.
Although he has yet to find the net in the league this term, the Spanish midfielder has already won the hearts of Arsenal fans with his ability to dictate the pace of the game and create chances for his teammates.

While the former Betis man thrived under Unai Emery, his parent club is enduring a torrid start to the season and can’t wait for a reunion at the end of the ongoing campaign.
Los Blancos’ shrewd move to deprive the Gunners of an option to sign Ceballos permanently next summer has now suffered a major blow, as the player himself seems to be enjoying his life in England.
Currently out for international duties with Spain, the highly-rated playmaker has dropped a massive hint over his future in north London.
“Going to Arsenal has been a very important step in my career,” he said ahead of Spain’s European Championship qualifier against Norway, as reported by the Mirror.
“I don’t feel sorry for not being in Madrid. Right now, I am where I want to be, and I am very happy. My idea was to go out, play and enjoy football. In the previous two years, I had not done so.
“In this national team, there is no one indisputable. I am very happy with the trust that has been placed in me.
“Our goal is to reach the European Championship in the best possible conditions.
“We have a team with a lot of room for improvement. We work side by side to show the level we want in the European Championship.”
Ceballos’ recent statement stays in sharp contrast to what the newspapers indicated at the time he left the Santiago Bernabeu to move to London.
It was then said that the player himself asked the Real hierarchy to exclude the possibility of Arsenal keeping hold of him at the end of the season.
