Tottenham Hotspur have been heavily linked with a move for Real Madrid playmaker, Dani Ceballos, with Sky Sports reporting that talks have now opened between the two clubs.
Ceballos was recently on red-hot form for the Spain U21 side at the European Championships as they won the entire tournament.
Ceballos has previously stated that he does not want to be sold this summer (Onda Cero), but perhaps his mind will be changed if given an ultimatum.
Let’s take a look at what my perfect Ceballos deal would entail:
I would be looking to kill two birds with one stone, namely Eriksen and Ceballos. It appears that Eriksen intends to leave Tottenham either this summer or on a free next year (Ekstra Bladet), so I think Levy should cash in while he can.
The easiest way to do this could be via a swap deal with Madrid playmaker, Dani Ceballos, something that has been mentioned throughout this transfer window (Sun).
I would rate Eriksen at £70m this summer, and the largely unproven Ceballos at around £45m. As a result, I believe that a £25m plus Ceballos deal for Eriksen would be fair for all parties involved.
However, I would want the option to buy Ceballos to come at the end of a one-year loan spell, giving Poch the chance to see if he has what it takes.
This would also free up further short-term budget for other players this summer.
Tottenham would be cashing in on Eriksen while the opportunity is still there, while also picking up a younger 22-year-old replacement.
Fingers crossed this deal can go through.
