But it appears the only hope the Gunners have is engineering a deal is on a loan basis.

"I don't want to be sold", Ceballos told Onda Cero. "I have plenty of football inside of me and I believe next season will be my best year", said Ceballos, whose value is increasing during the tournament.

"Whatever comes next, wherever I am, I want to enjoy myself and feel important".

He said: "I play to have fun. I wanted to prove my worth, this year hasn't been a great season for me and I just wanted things to go right", he added.

The footballer, who isn't in Zidane's plans for next year, is to leave on loan for 2019/20 and come back the season after.

Heat waves - which kill more people than any other extreme weather event - will nearly certainly keep getting worse, everywhere. Authorities have postponed summer examinations in France and northern regions in the country have been put on drought alert.

A full Spain worldwide, Ceballos is now preparing to face Germany in the final of the European Under-21 Championship. "I wanted to get things off my chest".

His first season saw him make just four league starts and although he started 12 league games last season, only two of those were following Zinedine Zidane's return as coach and the pair are thought to enjoy a hard relationship.

Dani Ceballos has starred with Spain, scoring twice and assisting twice in four matches, showcasing himself on an global stage. "It's a chance for revenge, because two years ago they steamrollered us, it was a rout". It was a tactically masterclass.

"This team has room to improve and we've still not reached our best level".

Once his global commitments are over, then Ceballos will be freed to focus on his club career.
