Arsene Wenger eyes surprise bid for 21-year-old Real Madrid maestro

December 6, 2017

As per the Spanish media, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are both interested in signing out-of-favour Real Madrid midfield prodigy Dani Ceballos in January transfer window.

The 21-year-old Ceballos starred for Spain at the Under-21 European Championships during the summer, winning the Player of the Tournament award as his side finished as runners-up to Germany.

However, the creative midfielder has failed to work his way into Zinedine Zidane’s first-team plans at Real Madrid since his summer switch from Real Betis, starting just two La Liga games so far and featuring in only 11 of their 23 matches across all competitions.

The reports from Diario Gol reports that the gifted youngster is already looking for a way out of the Bernabeu in search of more regular first-team football, alerting a number of clubs around Europe.

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are among those to have been credited with an interest in Ceballos, although they could face competition from the likes of AC Milan and Roma in Serie A.

The midfielder has also been linked with a loan move back to Betis for the remainder of the season having previously spent six years at the club since the age of 15.
