Arsenal fans have been waiting for a while to hear what the future of Dani Ceballos will be. They finally have their answer…

Dani Ceballos is one that divides opinion for a lot of Arsenal fans. Some think that he is worth a place in the starting XI, whereas others don’t want to sign him from Real Madrid permanently.

Me, personally, I’m in the second boat. I don’t feel like the Spaniard has done enough during his loan move to prove to Mikel Arteta that he is worthy of signing permanently, especially given the economic state of the upcoming transfer window.

Now, according to El Confidencial, Arsenal have made their minds up. Rumour has it, they wish to keep Dani Ceballos for the remainder of the season, whatever that may entail, but they do not want to sign him permanently.

This is a smart move, in my opinion. Especially considering there are much better options out there who would be even cheaper than Ceballos, the likes of Thomas Partey and Orkun Kokcu springing to mind.

Ceballos has a great future ahead of him, don’t get it twisted. He is going to be a truly exceptional player learning under the tutelage of Zinedine Zidane, having had experience at the top level already. However, he would simply be a luxury player at Arsenal and not what they need to be focusing on right now, so this decision is completely justified.

Now that we have clarity on this, the decisions shouldn’t end there. Other areas which need addressing are the situation involving Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and which other players will be sold since the Gunners need to raise money for Nicolas Pepe‘s instalment, do not forget.

I definitely agree with this decision, but I would love to hear your thoughts.
