Arsenal are reportedly not looking to sign Dani Ceballos permanently when his loan switch from Real Madrid is up at the end of the season.
The Spaniard recently extended his loan so that he can see out the remainder of the season after the coronavirus forced football to be suspended temporarily.
However, according to a report from the Sun, he has not done enough to convince Mikel Arteta to fork out the money needed to keep him at the Emirates.
There was no option to buy inserted in Ceballos’ loan deal and Real are said to be demanding £30m to part with the 23-year-old.

Arsenal do not believe Ceballos’ performances this season warrant such a fee and, with the club set to miss out on Champions League qualification again, they will be left without a huge transfer budget.
As a result, Arteta is set to continue blooding youngsters in midfield like Joe Willock and Ainsley Maitland-Niles who have emerged as regular members of the first team this campaign.

Ceballos is expected to return to Real Madrid
However, Ceballos has admitted that he wants to leave Madrid because he does not think he will be a first team regular next season.
“The owner of my future next year is me,” Ceballos said. “Next year I want to play and I will hardly be able to do that at Real Madrid.
“Betis? It is an option. I am not closing the door on any club and I do not rule out continuing with a team in the Premier League.”
