Arsenal are confident they can ensure on-loan Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos stays at the club if the Premier League season goes beyond June 30, according to reports.

The coronavirus outbreak has postponed all league matches until at least April 30, creating a dilemma for all players with contracts due to expire in the summer.

The Evening Standard report that the Gunners are confident they can strike a deal with the Spanish giants to keep the 23-year-old in north London if the season continues into July.

Top-flight clubs are due to discuss plans moving forward for the rest of the season in a meeting at the start of April.

The hope is the action can resume in mid-May, with a view of completing the domestic campaign before June 30.

All remaining games are expected to be played behind closed doors to try and ensure all players are protected from further infection.

Ceballos was sidelined with a hamstring injury in the first few weeks of Mikel Arteta’s reign as new Arsenal boss.

Since his return to action, the Spaniard has found a new lease of life in the Gunners’ midfield.

When asked earlier this month if the club could make a permanent move for the midfielder at the end of the season, Arteta said: ‘We haven’t had any discussions about it.

‘I’m really happy with Dani and what he’s bringing to the team right now.

‘It took him a while after his injury to get to the level that he has and that I’ve seen in the past. He’s performing much better now and that’s why he’s playing much more games.’
