Liverpool are considering a move for Real Madrid target Dani Ceballos and could buy the player for as little as €8million this summer.

Reports yesterday originated from Spain claiming that the Reds had been in contact with Real Betis concerning the midfielder, and confirming that he can talk to clubs as early as January since his current contract expires next year.

Interest high

However, with Real Madrid and AS Roma also monitoring his situation, Brendan Rodgers can look to get ahead of the pile by biting the bullet and paying €8m to be able to sign him this year, as per the Daily Mail.

Ceballos has been compared to Chelsea star Francesc Fabregas in the past - probably because he’s a rising young playmaker from Spain - and is already an established member of the Betis first-team having helped them get promoted to La Liga last season.

Betis stance

Naturally his current club are keen to retain his services, wanting him to continue his development in Spain rather than leave the club.

If they’re to get their way though they’ll have to act fast since Ceballos can sign a pre-contractual agreement in January even if he doesn’t leave in the coming weeks.

Liverpool business

It can be assumed Liverpool fans wouldn’t be all too surprised to see Rodgers dip into the transfer market again given how active he’s been so far this year.

Christian Benteke, Danny Ings, James Milner, Roberto Firmino and Joe Gomez are the notable arrivals thus far, but with Lucas Leiva’s future uncertain at the moment perhaps a move for another midfielder suitors Rodgers plans.

Liverpool fans, do you think Rodgers should pay €8m to eliminate the chance of losing Ceballos to Real? Let us know in the comments box below.
