€30m-rated midfielder prefers to stay in Madrid despite Arsenal offer

Dani Ceballos’ proposed move to the Premier League is now becoming increasingly unlikely as Real Madrid have changed their stance on the Spain international.

Dani was expected to be one of the names that left the Madrid this transfer window, as Zinedine Zidane undergoes a significant rebuild of the club, but the UCL giants hierarchy no longer see the ace’s exit as a guarantee this summer.

It’s understood that Los Blancos lack of movement in regards to bringing in either Paul Pogba or Christian Eriksen coupled with Dani’s sensational performances for Spain’s Under-21 this summer have encouraged the club’s hierarchy that the ace can work towards establishing himself as a star next campaign.

Ceballos is a target for Tottenham. Gunners made an offer of nearly £43m to sign the midfielder. Spanish midfielder didn’t play a significant role for Real Madrid last campaign, the midfielder made 27 appearances across all tournaments and failed to impress in those outings.

Despite a difficult campaign, Dani was on fire for Spain in the European Under-21 Championships. The star bagged two goals and provided two assists during his country’s journey to being crowned champions of Europe. The attacker has firmly re-established himself as one of Europe’s biggest midfield talents.

Dani would undoubtedly be an attractive signing to both Arsenal and Tottenham given his impressive skills and importantly his versatility, Ceballos can play in the central or attacking midfielder, the ace has also played on the wing during his career. Gunners also linked with Barcelona winger Malcom and Celtic defender Kieran Tierney.
