According to Diario Gol, Arsenal and Liverpool have supposedly contacted Dani Ceballos’ agent in an attempt to organise a move for the promising Spanish midfielder.
The 21-year-old enjoyed a fruitful spell at Real Betis that earned him his move to Real Madrid, yet the Spaniard has only made six La Liga appearances for the champions this season.
Despite favouring a summer move to Real Madrid over Catalan giants, Barcelona, Ceballos’ career with the Los Blancos is failing to develop as he would have hoped for.
The promising midfielder has only made two starts in La Liga for Madrid this season, and every single one of his Champions League appearances has been as a substitute.
It is believed that the Real Madrid man is keen to secure consistent first-team football elsewhere to continue his progression as a player.
It is reported that the La Liga champions are unwilling to allow their summer signing to depart in the forthcoming January transfer window and they would rather him leave on loan at the start of next season.
It will be interesting to see how the story develops and if Arsenal or Liverpool can alter Real Madrid’s current stance on the matter.
Despite only playing in six league games for the champions this term, Ceballos has scored twice – an average of a goal every three games. He is widely recognised for his astute dribbling ability and his valuable capacity to retain possession of the ball.
In addition to his attacking qualities, Ceballos flaunts good defensive capabilities, most notably is his ability to complete tackles.
His arrival is likely to augment the midfield of both Arsenal and Liverpool, yet perhaps he’ll be more tailored to the Gunners’ style of play.
