Ceballos spent three seasons at Betis between 2014 and 2017 before moving to Bernabeu.
The midfielder scored one goal and made two assists in 24 games for Arsenal this season, but the Gunners could see alternative options if they are unable to secure a permanent transfer.

The 26-year-old, who saw a proposed move to Liverpool fail two years ago, is believed to be worth around £ 30 million.
