Tottenham Hotspur have already strengthened their central midfield department considerably with the acquisition of Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon and Sky Sports suggest that they wish to further reinforce the area further by securing the services of Real Madrid’s Dani Ceballos.
The 22-year-old has found playing time hard to come by at the La Liga giants following the return of Zinedine Zidane.
Ceballos was one of the stars of Spain’s successful Euro U-21 Championship campaign.
The midfielder is said to be available on a loan deal and the Spanish press have claimed that Mauricio Pochettino has already had a conversation with the former Real Betis man (AS).
He claimed that the youngster is more likely to get regular game time with Arsenal and that the Gunners are more likely to welcome a loan signing given their financial constraints.
According to The Daily Express, Sheth said: “Arsenal now, it appears, are going head-to-head with Tottenham for Dani Ceballos from Real Madrid.
“It appears that what Ceballos wants might fit in more with what Arsenal can do.
“I think Ceballos wants to do a loan, Real Madrid would ideally like to sell to get some money into the coffers to maybe buy other players.
“But Ceballos feels that he can still have an impact at the Bernabeu.
“So if you couple that with Arsenal’s, limited, we’re told, transfer budget, they can bring someone in like that on loan.
“Ceballos is looking for first-team football. Is he more likely to get it there than at Tottenham?”

We believe that Ceballos is talented enough to get a starting spot at Tottenham. However, unless the loan deal comes with an option to buy at the end of it, Levy is unlikely to be interested, in which case Arsenal could potentially hold the upper hand.
