Arsenal remain confident signing permanently Real Madrid midfielder Ceballos

Arsenal remain confident of signing permanently on-loan Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos.

The Daily Star says the Gunners' hopes of signing the Spaniard were given a boost as Zinedine Zidane put him on a list of stars who could leave Real Madrid this summer.

Zidane needs to cut down his current squad of 37 – including those out on loan – to fit within the 25-man quota for next season.

And it is thought Ceballos, 23, could well be one of the 12 at risk of facing the chop – as well as the likes of Luka Modric, Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez.

The Gunners will be hopeful of securing a new deal for the man they have on loan at the Emirates until June 30 – either temporarily again or on a permanent deal.
