‘Man Would Thrive Under Jurgen’ ‘Taking Real Madrid’s Write Offs?’ Liverpool Fans React To Reported Interest In Spanish Playmaker

Liverpool are one of three Premier League clubs interested in Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos, according to reports in Spain.

The Reds are believed to have increased their interest in the 22-year-old in recent weeks, with Tottenham and Arsenal also keen.

Fans on Twitter had a mixed reaction to the reports, with some questioning their reliability:

Ceballos did show his talent during the European Under 21 Championships for Spain and is available this summer with Real manager Zinedine Zidane keen to offload him.

Liverpool are, though, likely to be focusing their sights on signing a left-back first and foremost, as they seek a replacement for Alberto Moreno.

A bid for a forward would also be more likely than another central midfielder, and while Ceballos has potential, it’s unlikely that he would get a place in the starting eleven.

Even so, Reds scouts are likely to have watched him, considering his availability and his age.
