'Yesss', Klopp will make him a superstar - Liverpool fans react to agreement with 21 y/o dazzler reportedly
By Richard Parks
Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to express their delight at fresh reports that they are closing in on the signing of Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos.
Italian transfer site Calcio Mercato claim that the Merseyside giants have intensified contract talks with the 21-year-old’s agents in recent weeks and have been able to agree the terms of a deal.
It is said that the two parties have agreed in principle to a four-year contract with Ceballos ahead of the summer transfer window.
Calcio Mercato report that Liverpool have jumped ahead of AC Milan and Juventus in the race to sign the central midfielder, who is valued at £34.8 million by the Champions League holders.
Former Real Betis player Ceballos has made 20 appearances in all competitions for Real this season but has found himself behind the likes of Luka Modric and Toni Kroos in the central midfield pecking order.

Tellingly, he has been ignored by manager Zinedine Zidane at the crunch time of the season, which has thrown his future up into the air.
A section of Liverpool supporters have taken to Twitter to share their excitement at the club’s hot pursuit of Ceballos, with comments including “I’d take him for sure” and “his potential is brighter than Firmino’s teeth”.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
I’d take him for sure. Klopp can definitely turn him into a quality player.

He is already such good quality I can’t imagine how amazing he could be under Klopp

Given all of this their bargaining position shouldn’t be strong so hope we could get him for a reasonable price. I’d take him, he’s very technical ???? but it would be interesting where he fits and who else we get considering he can play no.8 and no.10

Ruben Neves, Jorginho and Ceballos. I’d be over the moon if we get two of these players.#LFC
