Dani Ceballos ‘hoping to force through Liverpool move’.
The midfielder reportedly expressed his desire to leave during talks with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez.
Surplus to Real Madrid, midfielder Dani Ceballos has held further talks with the club’s president Florentino Perez in the hope of forcing through a move to Merseyside, according to reports in Spain.
The 21-year-old is growing desperate to leave the Bernabeu this summer having made just 19 appearances for the Spanish giants this term. Liverpool are among a number of clubs keeping close tabs on Ceballos’ situation and are hopeful of striking a deal with Real Madrid to bring him to EPL.
The Spaniard is reportedly keen to fill the void left by Philippe Coutinho, who joined Real’s arch-rivals Barcelona during the January window and, according to Spanish reports, Ceballos has held further conversations with president Perez over a potential summer exit.
Liverpool believe they can snap up the exciting midfielder for just £30million in the summer and are hopeful that Ceballos’ desire to leave for Anfield could prove decisive.
