However, Tottenham fans need to be wary of not getting too carried away.
Ceballos is actually likely not have been included in Madrid’s squad, as he played in the European under-21 Championships.
Although Zidane is yet to confirm the reasons behind Ceballos’s absence, the attacking midfielder is currently on holiday, which suggests he has been given extended leave by Madrid.
If Ceballos does arrive at Tottenham this summer it would be a hugely exciting signing for Pochettino’s side, and he could potentially be used as a replacement for Christian Eriksen, if the Dane does leave.
