Tottenham Hotspur's pursuit of Giovani Lo Celso appears to have slowed down in recent weeks, and that has led Mauricio Pochettino to consider other targets. 

Spurs have been linked with Real Madrid ace Dani Ceballos for weeks now, especially since the 22-year-old starred for Spain in their Under-21 European Championship success. 

The former Real Betis star only managed 13 league appearances for Real last season, and that lack of playing time has been pretty consistent since he made the move.

 
 

Today, Sky Sports claimed that Tottenham are in talks about a deal to sign Ceballos, with the player himself favouring a loan move as he isn't quite ready to give up on his Real Madrid career. 

With a huge release clause in his deal, Spurs may also struggle to do a permanent deal, and the playmaker has decided to take to Instagram today for a little fun. 

Ceballos is at Universal Studios in Florida before returning to Real, and he has posted a photo of himself inside a red telephone box, pretending to answer a call whilst adding a bunch of cryptic emojis.

Of course, the red telephone boxes are associated with London or at least England, and that the photo was posted just after Sky's claim about talks being held may just hint that something is in the works.

The photo may well be innocuous, but the timing and the content itself points towards Tottenham, and fans will be hoping that he isn't just teasing them with his latest Instagram post.
