The Spaniard has impressed in the 11 games he has featured in for the North London club this season after joining from Madrid on a season-long loan in the summer, recording two assists and one goal.
The initial loan deal does not have an option for a permanent move to Arsenal at the end of the season and Ceballos was expected to return to the Spanish giants next season.

But according to El Desmarque, the 23-year-old held talks with Perez this week regarding his Real Madrid future and ‘hopeful’ a deal can be agreed for a permanent move to Arsenal.
The 23-year-old is believed to be prioritising the permanent move but fears Perez may scupper his chances of leaving the Bernabeu.
Ceballos has become an important part of Arsenal’s midfield already this season, and the gunners are keen to keep hold of the highly-rated playmaker.
£35million is believed to be the figure that would convince Perez to sell the Spaniard, with Real keen to make a profit on the £12million they reportedly paid Real betis for his services in 2017.
Ceballos struggled to tie down a regular spot in Zinedine Zidane’s team at the Bernabeu, but was called up for the Spanish national team for their most recent Euro 2020 qualifiers against Norway and Sweden.
