Dani Ceballos has revealed he’s on track to be fit for Arsenal’s trip to Bournemouth on Boxing Day.
Via his social media channels, Ceballos revealed: “There’s almost no time left! Boxing Day is my goal! 8 days until I’m back with the team!”
The Spain international has been sidelined by a hamstring problem picked up in the 1-1 draw with Vitoria on 6 November and has missed seven games so far.
Sunday’s game with Manchester City and the trip to Everton will also pass him by before he gets a chance to impress interim head coach Freddie Ljungberg.
Prior to his injury, Ceballos made 17 appearances, registering two assists and scoring one goal.
