Real Madrid are reportedly considering recalling Dani Ceballos from his loan spell at Arsenal as the midfielder struggles for starts in red and white.
The 24-year-old impressed under Mikel Arteta during his first loan spell at the club last season and was welcomed back to the Emirates Stadium with open arms for the 2020-21 campaign.
However, Ceballos has failed to hold down a regular spot in Arteta’s team this season, with Granit Xhaka and Mohamed Elneny preferred to the Spain international in the Gunners’ recent wins over Chelsea and Brighton & Hove Albion.
With the imminent return of Thomas Partey also set to hinder Ceballos’s chances of breaking back into the team, Calciomercato claims that Real Madrid could look to terminate his loan deal at the Emirates Stadium.
The report adds that the midfielder has garnered significant interest from Serie A despite his struggles in the English capital, with Juventus, AC Milan and Inter Milan all in the hunt for his signature.
Ceballos has already made 22 appearances for Arteta’s side in all competitions this term, but he has only started eight of Arsenal’s 16 Premier League games so far.
