Dani Ceballos heading home

Dani Ceballos doesn’t want to stay in London.

That’s according to Spanish publication Estadio Deportivo, who claims the on-loan Arsenal midfielder wants to re-join Real Betis.

The 23-year-old joined Real Madrid in July 2017 for roughly £15million but has managed just 35 La Liga appearances for the Bernabeu side.

Arsenal do NOT have the option to make his loan spell permanent and Ceballos has decided he would like to return to the Benito Villamarin Stadium for regular first-team football.

Thomas Lemar interest

Arsenal are a potential destination for Atletico Madrid flop Thomas Lemar.

Lemar, 24, joined Atletico from Monaco for £52.7million in June 2018 but he’s failed to deliver on a consistent basis for Diego Simeone.

The 22-capped France international, whose contract contains a £168million release clause, has managed just three goals and six assists in 67 appearances for the club.

Spanish publication AS claim Lemar is ‘not an essential player’ for Simeone with the Emirates Stadium and Manchester United ‘possible destinations’ for the player.

Lemar was a target for former Gunners boss Arsene Wenger back in 2017 but turned down the chance to move to Premier League and decided to remain with Monaco.

Wanted: Dejan Lovren

Jurgen Klopp has sanctioned the sale of centre-back Dejan Lovren.

Lovren has featured in just nine of Liverpool’s 29 Premier League fixtures this season and his firmly behind Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez in the pecking order.

According to Team Talk, rivals Arsenal and Tottenham are interested in securing the 30-year-old’s signature.

The player himself would prefer a move to London with West Ham and Crystal Palace also expressing interest in the Croatia international.

Raul Jimenez warning

Wolves are determined to keep hold of Raul Jimenez and have warned potential suitors that they have no interest in selling.

The Mexico international has been linked with Real Madrid, Manchester United and Arsenal after another impressive campaign.

The 28-year-old has scored 22 goals in 45 appearances this campaign and is reportedly valued at upwards of £80million.

Jimenez is under contract for another three years at Molineux Stadium and the Daily Star claim chairman Jeff Shi and owners Fosun International will block any approach for their talisman.
