Tottenham Hotspur may be on the lookout for a new central attacking midfielder this summer, with Christian Eriksen already declaring his desire for a new challenge (Ekstra Bladet).

The Great Dane has just a year left on his contract in North London, so unless Levy can tie him down to a new deal, he will have to plan for a long-term replacement.

One man tipped to be said replacement is Real Madrid and Spain playmaker, Dani Ceballos, fresh off the back of his U21 European Championship heroics.

Estadio Deportivo reported last week that Spurs were closing in on a deal for the attacking midfielder, while Sky Sports have claimed today that talks have now opened between Los Blancos and Tottenham over a possible deal.

It is unclear at this stage what a deal would involve, with Spurs said to be determined on getting either a permanent transfer or an option to buy the player after a loan deal (Football London).

Meanwhile, Ceballos himself is against the idea of being sold, seeing his long-term future at Real Madrid (Onda Cero).

However, Sky Sports did also suggest that Spurs may have to sell before bringing in new stars, hinting that Eriksen could be one player heading out the door.
