Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly keen on Real Madrid's Dani Ceballos.

Tottenham Hotspur may have reached the Champions League final under Mauricio Pochettino, but he still desperately needs reinforcements to his squad.

Midfield is one particular area of concern, and the problem was exacerbated in the January transfer window when Mousa Dembele left for China.

A host of midfielders have already been linked with moves to Spurs, and a new name has entered the mix in Real Madrid's Dani Ceballos.

 

AS report that Spurs are interested in rescuing Ceballos from the Real shadows, having barely featured since Zinedine Zidane's return as manager.

Ceballos was a star at Real Betis, but has struggled to reproduce that form in limited playing time with Real Madrid, and he looks set to move on this summer.

The Spaniard is a talented playmaker, but Spurs fans don't seem particularly impressed at hearing that Pochettino wants him this summer.

Fans believe that Ceballos is just a 'Spanish Tom Carroll', and offers nothing that Harry Winks doesn't provide already, feeling he'd be a waste of money.

Others urged Pochettino to focus on Lyon's Tanguy Ndombele instead of Ceballos, believing that he's the man to solve Tottenham's midfield issues rather than Ceballos.
