Dani Ceballos

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has responded to rumours claiming Dani Ceballos is seeking a premature termination of his loan spell at the Emirates due to worries that his lack of game-time at the club will affect his chances of making Spain's Euro 2020 squad.
Speaking in a press conference, he said, "I had a conversation with Dani. When I joined the club he wasn't here, he was in Madrid because he was doing his rehab - for over a month - in Madrid with the team that owns him. And then, when I came here, he was doing his rehab and by the first two or three weeks he was getting back to fitness and I haven't seen much of him because he's only trained with us for a week or 10 days, you know. So it's very early to assess what I can or cannot do with him. I heard about all those things but I have nothing to comment."
