Mikel Arteta keen to retain midfielder Dani Ceballos in his squad

  • Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is keen to hold talks with Real Madrid to retain midfielder dynamo, Dani Ceballos.

Ceballos is known for his industry in the middle of the park. So far, he scored the last-minute winner goal in the FA Cup win over Sheffield United last weekend.

The midfielder’s passion for Arsenal was evident on Saturday as he celebrated Alexandre Lacazette’s goal as the Gunners trashed Wolves.

The 23-year-old is likely to earn him a permanent deal at the Emirates Stadium this summer after his loan season elapses as Arteta, commented: “I am really happy with him.”

“I love how much he likes to play football, the passion he puts into every training session and in every game. His celebrations, whether he’s on the pitch or on the bench, he puts his life into it.

“He’s evolving the right way and has become a really important player for us.” He added.

“We are talking to the club – obviously we don’t own the player, it’s not in our hands. The clubs need to have communication and see what we can do.”

Back-up goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez has kept three clean sheets in four matches since replacing the injured Bernd Leno.

But Arteta has told the 27-year-old he needs to maintain that consistency over a prolonged spell if he is to make the number one spot his own.

“That’s what he’s been trying to do for a long period now at the club,” said Arteta.

“As I said before, his preparation, his attitude has been spot on. He’s been very respectful, very patient and now that he has the opportunity, he’s grabbing it.

“At this level, it’s not about two, three, eight, or 10 games, it’s about the consistency over a lot of games and that’s what he needs to prove now.” He added.
