Dani Ceballos looks set to return home to boyhood club Real Betis. Unfortunately, it appears Dani Ceballos has finally chosen his destination for next season. His choice was never Real Madrid, as he doesn't believe he'll be able to play under Zinedine Zidane, and has no spot within the team. His choice was between Arsenal and his hometown club, Real Betis. I don't fault his choice in the slightest, and though I will miss him dearly, his future at Arsenal was always going to be temporary.

Dani Ceballos: In Memoriam The focus of this piece will be to look back at the Spaniard's one-year Arsenal career, at both the good and the bad. His only two assists on the season came in that game, and his next goal contribution wouldn't occur for another two months, and he didn't play the full 90 minutes till three weeks after that. He missed 11 straight games with a torn muscle bundle, and failed to appear in the seven matches after that – six times he was left on the bench, and once he was omitted from the squad entirely. He didn't miss a subsequent game, but only played the full 90 in five of those 19 matches, scoring one goal, albeit a crucial one against Sheffield United. Those are pretty deplorable numbers, especially for a player signed to fill the creative void in Arsenal's squad.

And now that he's likely staying in Spain, that void will need filling, and Ceballos will need replacing. RELATED PRODUCT Arsenal adidas Pre-Match Top - Scarlet Buy Now! Even without the end product we might have wanted, his impact on every match was far more than a mere creative player. DANI CEBALLOS reportedly wants a move to Real Betis despite Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta believing he wants to stay at the Emirates. The midfielder joined the Londoners on a season-long loan from Real Madrid last summer. 2 Arsenal could yet miss out on getting Dani Ceballos for another season "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 if the latest reports emerging from Spain are to be believed, Ceballos to Arsenal is unlikely. Mundo Deportivo is reporting that the player has told employers Real Madrid that he prefers a move to LaLiga rivals Real Betis. Despite James Rodriguez nearing a move to Everton, Ceballos would not be guaranteed game-time under Zinedine Zidane. And with the French boss saying he wants to give Martin Odegaard his chance this season, Ceballos has decided Betis is his "favoured" destination. Real Madrid would likely sanction another loan move - but expect their LaLiga rivals to stump up his full wages - believed to be £50,000 a week. Ceballos settled into a good partnership with Granit Xhaka when the Premier League came back from coronavirus lockdown. However, Ceballos' loan from Real has now come to an end and he is expected to report back for duty in the Spanish capital ahead of the new LaLiga season. 2 Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is confident he can get Dani Ceballos on board
