Premier League duo Arsenal and Tottenham are now boosted in pursuit of Dani Ceballos after he was dropped from Madrid tour squad.
Spurs are said to be in favor of his signature but news has it that Arsenal will compete as Unai Emery looks to strengthen his midfield.
The 22-year-old impressed when he led Spain to glory in the European Under 21 Championships, scoring two goals and two assists.
Known to be keen for more first-team football, with Real Madrid not looking able to offer him the game time ,he wants to look elsewhere.
Mauricio Pochettin is looking to land the player following speculations that Christian Eriksen will probably leave Spurs this season to Spain.
From the other end, Arsenal could consider a loan move due to their limited transfer budget, which would keep the door open for a Real Madrid return in the future or a permanent deal to Tottenham.
The two clubs will meet in the International Challenge Cup on July 23, whilst new Gunners sporting director Edu could be working behind the scenes to try and make a Ceballos move happen.
