Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta reveals that Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos is keen to return to the Emirates Stadium ahead of the new season.

Mikel Arteta has suggested that Arsenal are working on agreeing a new deal for Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos.

The Spaniard has recently returned to his parent club after starring for the Gunners during the back end of his season-long loan spell.

However, with the player's future at the Bernabeu currently uncertain, Arteta has acknowledged that the 24-year-old is open to returning to North London.

Speaking to reporters on Thursday, Arteta said: "Well, we have some talks and Dani knows really well what I think about him.

"He was pretty clear with me as well that his intention was to remain with us, but obviously Real Madrid is involved and I don't know yet what they want to do with the player.

"But he's a player that we are interested in because we really saw, in the last few months of the season, what he is capable of bringing to us."

Ceballos made a total of 37 appearances for Arsenal in all competitions during the most recent campaign.
