West Ham United transfer news: Manuel Pellegrini ‘keen on signing’ Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos
West Ham United are reportedly interested in Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos.
The 22-year-old is understood to be surplus to requirements as Zinedine Zidane prepares a big overhaul at the club following a poor season.
The Mirror report the Hammers have been alerted to his availability in the summer.
Manager Manuel Pellegrini is a big fan as is director of football Mario Husillos.
The Spain international could be available on a season-long loan or for around £18million on a permanent transfer.
West Ham could be looking for a replacement for Pedro Obiang who has consistently been linked with a move away from the club.
Ceballos could be the right fit for Pellegrini’s side should they lose Obiang in the summer.
The midfielder has played 22 times in La Liga for Real Madrid this season, including 12 starts.
