West Ham hope to take advantage of Real Madrid’s summer clearout as they eye a move to sign Dani Ceballos.

According to the Mirror, both Manuel Pellegrini and director of football Mario Husillos are big admirers of the Spaniard and believe that he could be a huge success at the London Stadium.

Ceballos is being tipped to leave Real this summer having fallen out of favour in Spain.

He is not in the first-team picture under Zinedine Zidane and that does look like changing anytime soon, with Real expected to strengthen during the upcoming summer transfer window.

Ceballos has been linked with moves away from the La Liga giants in the past and was once believed to be a transfer target for Liverpool, but as of yet, no move has come to fruition.

The lack of Europan football may hinder West Ham’s pursuit, but they would certainly be able to offer the Spaniard regular first-team football in the Premier League
