Attacking midfielder Ceballos, meanwhile, has also seen his temporary loan move from Real Madrid extended until the end of the 2019-20 campaign, with coronavirus forcing the Premier League to continue beyond June 30.
- What did you miss?
"He helps everyone." Arsenal's technical director Edu Gaspar had this to say about Luiz.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta admits that Cedric Soares should be a permanent player for the club very soon.
There's no denying that the 28-year-old will be a great backup for Hector Bellerin at the right-back role next season but as far as Arsenal are concerned this decision from the club is a clear indication that they are not willing to spend too much money in the transfer market.
Luiz came under heavy criticism for his error-strewn cameo performance in the 3-0 defeat at Manchester City last Wednesday. The Brazil worldwide made a mistake for the opening goal and was later sent off after conceding a penalty in an appearance which lasted 25 minutes.
He has not played a single game, but may still earn a permanent deal. However, the club fears that the defender could miss the rest of the season after suffering an ankle injury at the Etihad Stadium.
Soares has been injured and has not gotten the chance to impress Arteta. We were really pleased with Pablo - his behaviour, the way he is training, his mentality and his quality.
"I am really happy that we will have these players in our squad for the future", said Edu. He's got to the stage now that whatever team he plays for, if he's your centre-back, the whole crowd are holding their breath every time he goes to make a challenge or interception.
"The club is trying to finalise everything in the next few hours and we have no choice, we have to do it and even more with all the injuries we have had". We're also pleased Dani will finish the season here.
