A number of Arsenal fans have given their thoughts on the report claiming Gunners boss Mikel Arteta wants to sign Dani Ceballos and Mat Ryan permanently.
Both players are currently on loan at the Emirates Stadium, with Ceballos in his second season away from Real Madrid and Ryan arriving in January from Brighton.
Ceballos has made 62 appearances for Arsenal, while Ryan has featured once, doing well in his debut against Aston Villa despite conceding an unlucky early goal.
The Sun suggests that there are question marks hanging over the futures of certain players at Arsenal, such as Alexandre Lacazette, David Luiz and Eddie Nketiah.
However, the report also says Arteta would reportedly like to have Ceballos and Ryan in his ranks next season.
It is also suggested that Arsenal could look to ask whether Real Madrid would be interested in selling fellow Bernabeu loanee Martin Odegaard.
The Gunners are enduring another difficult season but there are signs the club is going in the right direction, so a potential summer overhaul makes sense.
But what have Arsenal fans made of the players Arteta reportedly wants to buy? Here is some of the Twitter reaction:
If Ceballos is similar value to Torreira it’s absolutely worth it, stop complaining at everything. He’s a useful squad player 👍🏼

Not when Boubakary Soumare is likely the same value.
We lack a MF anchor which Dani doesn’t solve. Good player but won’t ever be more than a squad player while the same money should be spent on a talent capable of breaking into the starting XI.
Not smart fund allocation imo
