DANI CEBALLOS is reportedly ready to ask Real Madrid president Florentino Perez to extend his loan at Arsenal.
The 23-year-old attacking midfielder produced another standout performance to help down Manchester City 2-0 at Wembley on Saturday.
Dani Ceballos will personally ask Real Madrid’s president if he can stay at Arsenal
Now after helping the Gunners reach the FA Cup Final, boss Mikel Arteta wants to retain the loanee’s services.
And according to Spanish outlet El Confidencial, the player himself is ready to plead with Madrid’s top chief in order to secure the move.
Arsenal have already contacted the Bernabeu giants regarding a deal for another 12 months.
However, Madrid are only interested in doing business with a permanent transfer.
Perez has already stated they need to sell before any big-name arrivals due to the monetary impacts of the coronavirus crisis.

He said: “The situation is very bad and there will be no great signings.
“It is very difficult to ask the players to lower their salaries and make signings of this kind.”
That means they would prefer to bring in the cash for Ceballos to go towards strengthening their squad.
But a possible loan extension is still on the cards.

The same publication claimed yesterday that Real may be willing to lend him to Arsenal for another campaign as long as the deal includes an obligation to buy for a fee of around £18million.
Ceballos is happy with life in London after his long-term pal Hector Bellerin helped him to settle in the capital.
And after a sticky start, his performances over recent months have made him a fan favourite with Gooners.
