Europa League runners-up Arsenal are in talks with Real Madrid to sign Spanish midfielder Dani Ceballos.
Naija News gathered that Tottenham Hotspur are also in the running to sign the highly-rated midfielder.
However, The Gunners looks to be front-runners in the race to sign the 22-year-old and talks are progressing over a season-long loan.
Arsenal manager Unai Emery is a fan of Ceballos, who wants to get out of Madrid to secure regular first-team football.
Ceballos joined Real Madrid for £15 million ($19m) in 2017 from Real Betis but has struggled to nail down a regular starting spot at the Bernabeu.
The Spanish outfit are reluctant to lose him on a permanent basis, however, which is why a loan move to the Emirates looks the likely outcome from the talks between the two clubs.
Arsenal would have to pay a loan fee to take him for the season, while also covering his wages – which are thought to be around £2.7m ($3.3m) a year.
