Arsenal loanee Dani Ceballos has
revealed that he wants to be considered an important player at his new
club as he aims to move on in the off-season.
The Spain international joined the Gunners on a season-long loan deal
from Real Madrid in the summer but injury hampered his progress as he
showed flashes of brilliance.
With the coronavirus outbreak halting leagues around Europe, Ceballos
is unsure if he will play for Arsenal again and he's outlined the
importance of feeling loved at his next club.
Appearing on Spanish TV show El Chiringuito de Jugones, Ceballos
said: "I finish my contract on 30 June but I would have to [continue to]
play for Arsenal [when football returns]. I don't know how [that would
work with his loan technically having finished].
"It would be irresponsible from my side to talk about my future. The
most important thing will be to be important for my new team. I came to
Arsenal to be an important player but in the last month that all
disappeared [due to coronavirus stopping football]."
When asked whether he had the chance to leave Arsenal in January,
Ceballos added: "Yes, my agent told me about the interest of other teams
but I did not play because I was coming back from injury.
"I started training and changed my situation. In the last month-and-a-half I felt important. I knew about Valencia's interest."
