LIVERPOOL are keen to sign Real Madrid ace Dani Ceballos.
The 21-year-old has been linked with a move away from the Bernabeu in recent months.
Ceballos has struggled to get regular game time following his move to Real last summer from Real Betis.
The midfielder has started just two La Liga games under Zinedine Zidane this time out. And according to Spanish transfer outlet Don Balon, Liverpool are desperate to land the Spain Under-21 international.
They claim Jurgen Klopp sees Ceballos as an ideal replacement for Barcelona star Philippe Coutinho at Anfield.
Don Balon also say that Ceballos has told Real president Florentino Perez of his desire to leave the Bernabeu in search of regular game time.
Coutinho completed his move from Liverpool to Barca last month in a £142m deal. The Brazil international, 26, handed in a transfer request last summer in hope of forcing through the switch.
However, the playmaker was forced to wait until the January transfer window to get his dream move to the Nou Camp.
