Arsenal are however hoping that the player is allowed to stay to see out the remainder of the season in case the decision to restart comes to fruition.

Per reports by Spanish publication El Confidencial, the Spaniard is not a priority for the Gunners and they will not exercise an option to sign him permanently.

The 23-year-old has constantly spoken oh his desire to return to the Santiago Bernabeu and fight for a place in the team but is yet to be Zinedine Zidane’s favourite.
