Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos has reportedly been given permission to look for a new club and has initiated contact over a possible transfer to Liverpool, Arsenal and Inter Milan.

The 21-year-old shone at previous club Real Betis before earning a move to the Bernabeu this summer, but he’s managed just six appearances in La Liga so far.

According to Diario Gol, Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane never really wanted to sign the youngster, who will now be allowed to leave amid talks with the likes of Liverpool and Arsenal.

Ceballos looks like a player with decent potential, and one who could benefit from getting regular playing time in the Premier League.

It remains to be seen how much Liverpool or Arsenal would be willing to gamble on an inexperienced player who hasn’t seen much action lately, but Diario Gol’s report suggests there is some interest.

In fairness to the Spaniard, breaking into this competitive Real side is no mean feat, with so many big names ahead in the midfield pecking order.

Diario Gol add that any exit for the player is unlikely to happen until the summer.
