JAMIE REDKNAPP believes that Arsenal will already be keen to turn Dani Ceballos’ loan deal into a permanent move following his starring display against Burnley.
The 23-year-old was named as man of the match against the Clarets on his full Premier League debut last weekend as he assisted both goals for the Gunners.
Arsenal don’t have the option to sign him permanently from Real Madrid, though Redknapp insists that they will be keen to ask Los Blancos how much do they want for him.
Ceballos is expected to start at Anfield against Liverpool on Saturday, and could be the man that Jurgen Klopp identifies as Unai Emery’s key player.
Speaking of the ex-Real Betis star, Redknapp told the Daily Mail: “What a performance from Dani Ceballos on his full Premier League debut.
“Arsenal must already be tempted to ask Real Madrid how much it would cost to sign their loanee on a permanent deal.
“Jurgen Klopp will watch back Arsenal’s win over Burnley and note they need to stop Ceballos at Anfield next week.
“That will be a great test of the 23-year-old’s ability.”
Ceballos immediately endeared himself to the Arsenal fans on his debut against Newcastle, with supporters commenting on an off-the ball incident.
And he revealed the win against Burnley was of the best days of his life, as he said: “When you have a great game and can help the team to get the victory, you feel satisfaction to know that you’re going home calmly and with the work done.
“The truth is that for me it has been one of the most special days of my life.
“I think that by starting at home with a win, and with this passion shown at the end of the match, I think it will be hard for me to forget this day.”
