‘Amazing But Unlikely’ ‘Exactly What We Need’ West Ham Fans On Twitter Excited By Prospect Of £20m Signing

West Ham have made a move for Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos, according to reports in the English media.

The Hammers are said to have opened talks about a £20m deal for the 22-year-old as the club look to strengthen their squad:

Fans on Twitter are mostly enthusiastic about pursuing Ceballos but don’t think it will happen:

Ceballos has fallen out of favour at Real since the return of Zinedine Zidane as manager. The Spanish international had played pretty regularly under Julen Lopetegui and Santiago Solari but he has featured just three times since the Frenchman was reappointed.

However, the midfielder is a favourite of Spain manager Luis Enrique. Ceballos was handed his senior debut for the national team back in September and has collected six caps so far.

The Spaniard scored his first goal for his country in the 3-2 defeat to Croatia in the UEFA Nations League game back in November. He also started the first match of the Euro 2020 qualifiers against Norway in March.
