Barclays Premier League duo Arsenal and Liverpool have been alerted to the possibility that highly-rated Spanish starlet Dani Ceballos could be available in the January transfer window, Mirror Sport reports.
The 19-year-old’s contract with Liga BBVA side Real Betis expires at the end of the season and reportedly has a £7.5million release clause in his current contract, however, he could leave the club for a cut-price deal if he doesn’t sign an extension before the New Year.
The north London outfit are set to go head-to-head with the Reds for the teenager’s signature and there is a possibility he could sign a pre-contract agreement with either club in January.
Ceballos has been tipped to have a bright future in the game and has been likened to ex-Gunners star Cesc Fabregas in the past after starring for the Spanish U19 side at this summer’s European Championships.
