Arsenal have suffered a setback as they plan their squad for next season, with Real Madrid now eager to keep Dani Ceballos.
The midfielder impressed under Mikel Arteta's guidance in the final months of his loan spell at Arsenal and helped the Gunners to win the FA Cup.
Arsenal want to call upon Ceballos again next season and it appeared that they had a good chance of doing so either by signing him permanently or bringing him in on another loan deal.
