Dani Ceballos is certainly showing Tottenham Hotspur why it would be a blow to miss out on him this summer.
In a previous article on Vital Spurs, we mentioned that potentially losing out on the Real Madrid midfielder could only be considered as something that they would regret and it would appear as though the Spaniard is proving our point emphatically.
We stated that we felt the 22-year-old would be an individual that would provide Mauricio Pochettino with an additional dimension in the side and would also help to bring some extra creativity and goal threat with him from the middle of the park.
And, it would appear the versatile midfielder is showing exactly what he can bring to a team with his performances for Spain’s Under-21 side.
Ceballos has played a starring role for his country in their European Championships so far and has, perhaps, looked like one of the best players in the team over the three group matches.
Looking at the statistics recorded by WhoScored, he has scored two (spectacular) goals and provided his team-mates with two assists as they turned their poor start right around. In attack, Ceballos has proved key with the ball as well, as he has averaged 4.7 shots per match, 3.3 key passes and has produced 4.7 successful dribbles per game.
His style of game is certainly something that Pochettino and Spurs would benefit having in the team and he would only make us better going forward, whilst he hardly neglects his defensive abilities either.
In the three matches played so far, the Real Madrid man has made an average of 1.3 tackles and 0.7 interceptions per game (WhoScored), perhaps, making him the box-to-box midfielder that we need in our side moving forward.
Because of those impressive performances, Real Madrid have slapped a huge €50million (£44.7m) price-tag on him this summer (AS), so whether we decide to make a move for him remains to be seen.
