Arsenal midfielder Dani Ceballos wants a very busy summer as he is hopeful he can play for Spain in the Olympic Games and the Euro 2020.

Real Madrid loanee Dani Ceballos is enjoying his time with Arsenal in the English Premier League.

And he hopes his good form can take him to participate in the 2010 Olympic Games in Tokyo and the 2020 European Championship.

“A player is not happy if he doesn’t play, [but] when he feels important and does [play], then he is happy,” Ceballos told Radio Marca.

“Obviously I have been at Real Madrid, I have learned from the best and I have won trophies, but it is easier when you play matches.”

He explained: “I’m happy and I feel important [at Arsenal], with room for improvement to play at the Euros next year.”

“My words were misunderstood.”

“When I do not play, I don’t enjoy myself,” he said.

“I have learned a lot in these two years at Real Madrid, but now I am enjoying [my football].”

“I knew that it was an important year, the coach [for Spain, Robert Moreno,] has doubts and the one who doesn’t play isn’t going to be called up; it was a good time to go out on loan,” he commented.

“With [Unai] Emery’s confidence, I may have a chance of going to the Euros.”

he said: “I never thought of leaving permanently.”

“My goal is to succeed at Real Madrid. I’m going to fight to fulfill my dream.”
