Five ways Spurs could line up with Dani Ceballos next season

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with Real Madrid attacking midfielder, Dani Ceballos, in the last few weeks, and a move may be close (Estadio Deportivo).

Recent reports have stated that Spurs are closing in on a loan move that would see Ceballos move to North London for the 2019/20 season (Star).

It is unclear whether there would be an option to buy clause in the contract.

With Ndombele already signed and ready to be implemented into the first team next season, how could Tottenham line up with Ceballos at their disposal too?

We have taken all the stars currently at the club to work out how the Spaniard could be best utilised in the front line (keeping the defence largely unchanged).

1 – Ceballos could play as the furthest forward in a central three, a role we have seen Dele Alli in on numerous occasions. 2 – Ceballos can play further forward in an attacking three behind Harry Kane, but in a central role. 3 – Ceballos can play in a deep-lying midfield three as a playmaker to release the likes of Son, Kane, and the overlapping full-backs.

4 – Ceballos could play further forward in a three behind Harry Kane, this could be alongside Son, Moura, Eriksen, Alli, Lamela, etc.

5 – Ceballos could play in a three behind Kane, along with overlapping wing-backs and just one central midfielder behind him.Which is your favourite and why?

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. That 3-5-1-1 looks quite interesting to me. Ceballos or Alli in a formation like that would be great. Minus Foyth playing as a wingback. Not sure he can handle the attacking aspect of that role.

  2. 3-4-3 based on the talent. Vertongen, alderwield, sanchez back line. Diamond midfield, Sissoko cdm, Ndombele and Winks left and right, Ceballos as attacking, Alli, Kane Son front three

  3. No matter what the formation is we need to play exciting and attacking football which we rarely did and especially so in the final last season. Less passing side ways and back, more players being comfortable on the ball, remember we as supporters DEMAND to be entertained.;
