Arsenal and Liverpool will reportedly go head-to-head with Serie A side AC Milan for Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos when the transfer window re-opens this January.
According to the report from talkSPORT, the Italian club are leading in the race to sign the Spanish playmaker, although both Arsenal and Liverpool remain interested and would be keen on securing the signature of the Spain international.
Ceballos had quite the summer this year. Despite finishing as the runners-up for Spain in the recent U21 European Championships to Germany, he impressed for his nation, finishing as the player of the Tournament and being named in the Team of the Tournament as well.
Ceballos then made the transfer to Real Madrid from Real Betis for €18m reported fee, although the forward who’s rated at £15.30m by Transfermkt has seen lack of enough playing time for the La Liga champions.
He played in only three matches across all competition for Zinedine Zidane’s side this season, as he is desperate for regular football, although getting ahead of the likes of Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, Isco and Marco Asensio presents the challenge he has in front of him.
It is the chances of first-team football that AC Milan believe can convince Real Madrid to part ways with the 21-year-old, although they face strong competition from Arsenal and Liverpool should he be open for a move in January.
