According to El Des Marque, Tottenham Hotspur are now the leading contenders to sign Dani Ceballos from Real Madrid.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is keen to strengthen his side’s midfield this summer, and a range of targets have already been linked.

Ceballos is also said to be on Tottenham’s radar, and Spurs are thought to be ready to step up their interest in the Madrid man now.


Pochettino’s side are reported prepared to pay between £35 and £45 million for the central midfielder, who could leave Madrid this summer.

The Spanish side need to offload players to balance the books, after a big spending transfer window already.

If Cebellos was to arrive at White Hart Lane he could be an excellent addition to Pochettino’s squad.

The 22-year-old is still young enough to develop, and he already has a lot of eye catching qualities.

Ceballos is very capable in possession, and his arrival at Spurs would help add the depth in midfield which they were desperately lacking last campaign.
