Arsenal boss Unai Emery has hailed Tottenham Hotspur target Dani Ceballos in his latest press conference, which was covered by Football.London.

According to AS Sport, Tottenham and Arsenal are battling it out for Ceballos, who could leave Real Madrid this summer.

El Confidencial has suggested that Ceballos wanted to play for Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham, but Arsenal’s interest has complicated things.


The Gunners are thought to want to take Ceballos on loan, while Spurs would prefer him on a permanent deal.

AS have suggested that Spurs were willing to pay £45 million for Ceballos, but they are yet to complete a deal, which has given Arsenal a chance.

And when asked about his side’s reported interest in Ceballos, Emery said: “I don't want to speak about the names. Dani Ceballos is a very good player.”

Ceballos would surely be a good addition to either Tottenham’s or Arsenal’s sides.

The playmaker was one of the stars of the recent European under-21 Championships, where he showed his quality.

If Tottenham or Arsenal get hold of Ceballos this summer, he should add a great amount of creativity to their squads.
