Real Madrid duo Dani Ceballos and Martin Ødegaard are currently out on loan at Arsenal.
The Gunners took the Spain international on a temporary deal for the second time last summer, while the 22-year-old arrived at the Emirates in the winter market.
Earlier this week, there were claims Arsenal are looking to sign the duo on on permanent transfer in the summer.
Sport have relayed the claims made in England and then provide their own information on the two players’ chances of joining the Premier League side on permanent deals.
Ceballos and the Norway international have convinced Mikel Arteta, who is the ‘main supporter’ for the duo to continue at the north London club.
Both midfielders haven’t convinced Zinedine Zidane, but the La Liga winners have different plans for the two.
According to the report, neither the former Real Betis man nor the Madrid club ‘seem interested in meeting again’ after this season.
The 13-time European champions would have ‘no problem’ to sell Ceballos in the summer, and an offer close to €25m should be enough to convince them to sanction the sale.
Things are different with Ødegaard, who lost prominence under Zidane in the first half of the season. The Norwegian has already warned his parent club he will not return to Santiago Bernabéu, if the Frenchman is still at the club.
Ødegaard has a contract until 2023 that includes a €350m release clause. Real Madrid still believe he can be ‘one of the pillars of their future project’.
Therefore, they are referring to his hefty buyout clause to those clubs, including Arsenal, who want to take him in the next window.
Arsenal receive encouragement to make Ceballos’ stay permanent in the summer after Real Madrid make their stance and fee demands clear. Arteta’s side, however, may struggle to retain Ødegaard beyond this term because of his high asking price.
