The midfielder, Daniel Ceballos Fernández could be on his way to England if a deal is sealed for the youngster.
Both Tottenham and Arsenal's hopes of signing Real Madrid midfielder have received a boost after the Spaniard was left out of the Real Madrid International Champions Cup squad, as reported by Football London.
The 22-year-old's stock rose as he impressed in the European U21 Championships, scoring two goals and providing two assists on the team's way to lifting the title.
Man City midfielder set to become promoted club's latest signing
Aston Villa are closing in on a £15 million deal to sign Manchester City midfielder Douglas Luiz, reports the Daily Telegraph.
Douglas has yet to make a first-team appearance for City after the Brazilian was refused a work permit and has spent the past two seasons on loan at Girona.
However, Villa are confident they can secure a work permit for the 21-year-old as they look to continue their summer spending spree since winning promotion back to the Premier League.
Legendary Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has revealed he turned down approaches from both Manchester United and Manchester City this summer before making an emotional return to Serie A champions Juventus.
The 41-year-old was wary of the potential of another bit-part season had he moved to the Premier League after making just 25 appearances for Paris Saint-Germain last season.
The Daily Mail claim Buffon could have doubled his wages had he opted to switch to either of the Manchester clubs, but the stopper, who has a record 176 caps for Italy to his name, was not prepared to play understudy to Ederson or David de Gea.
