According to a recent report by AS (translated by Football.London), Tottenham Hotspur are set to win the race to secure the services of Dani Ceballos from Real Madrid during this summer transfer period.
The same source has also claimed that the Spanish talent had a telephonic conversation with Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino and he was convinced by the Argentine manager to choose the North London club over AC Milan, who were also eager to recruit him in this off-season.
Ceballos’ Lacklustre Season In La Liga
The Spaniard experienced a rough campaign in the last term when he failed to find consistency with his performances on the field. The La Liga midfield ace played 34 matches for Real Madrid in the previous campaign, scoring only three times while providing two assists across various competitions.
The ex-Real Betis prospect has also played in six international matches for Spain and has registered one goal for them thus far. Ceballos is in dire need of regular game time on the pitch if he intends to prove his worth at the highest level. The 22-year-old still has enough time at his disposal to work on improving his game so that he can become a world-class player in his position someday.
What Will The Spaniard Bring To The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium?
Ceballos is an accurate passer who can distribute the ball with ease and precision from midfield. The Spanish youngster has an eye for a killer pass in the final third and can contribute by scoring a few goals going forward. He is primarily a box to box midfielder who can also impact the game from the number 10 position or down the left wing.
Is Ceballos The Right Fit For Spurs?
The potential acquisition of Ceballos, even if it is on a season-long loan deal, will improve Pochettino’s squad depth at the North London club. He might also serve as a decent replacement for Christian Eriksen if the Denmark international ends up leaving Spurs this summer.
All in all, Ceballos will be an ideal fit for Pochettino’s brand of football in the Premier League and could turn out to be the missing link that could help Tottenham win some silverware next season.
