Liverpool is reportedly keeping tabs on exciting Real Betis Spanish prospect Dani Ceballos.

While Express claims that Liverpool have already agreed a deal with Betis to bring the Spanish wonderkid at Anfield next summer.

Real Betis sporting director Eduardo Macia, a former Liverpool chief scout, has been trying to convince the 19-year-old to stay at Betis and continue his development.

He has just 12 months left on his current contract and has a buyout clause set at £8million.

The Seville-based newspaper Diario de Sevilla claim contact has already been made and the Spain Under-21 international will make the switch next June.

While the deal won’t go through straight away, the report even goes so far as to suggest a house and car has been arranged to make the transition as smooth as possible.

Ceballos is a creative midfielder but can play as a winger also.

He was a key part of the Spain Under-19 side that beat Russia this summer to win the European Championships this summer; he started the final.

Ceballos scored five goals in 33 matches last season. The 19-year-old has been compared with compatriot Cesc Fabregas and was a mainstay for Betis as they won promotion to La Liga from the Segunda Division last term.

Ceballos has been capped at various youth levels for his country and was part of the academy at his club’s cross-town rivals Sevilla.

Arsenal and Roma are also interested in signing the highly-rated youngster, but Liverpool seem to have acquired his services.
