The race is on for Dani Ceballos as Aston Villa and Wolves compete for his signature in the upcoming Premier League season.
Aston Villa and Wolves seem to be sniffing around Dani Ceballos like bees to honey, and word on the street is he’s all ears. According to our pals over at Estadio Deportivo, the Premier League could be the next stop on the Ceballos Express once he waves adios to his current contract this summer.
Now, it’s no secret that Unai Emery and Julen Lopetegui have had their eyes on Ceballos for quite some time. After all, Lopetegui even had the pleasure of working with the midfield maestro back in the day. But you know what they say, if you snooze, you lose, and it seems that Atletico Madrid learned that the hard way after their advances were met with a resounding “no, gracias.”
So, the big question on everyone’s mind is: will Ceballos be lured back to the Premier League by the sweet siren song of Emery and Lopetegui? While it’s still hazy whether Villa have made another move, after their initial attempt reportedly went down like a lead balloon, it’s clear that Ceballos is quite the catch for Emery.
Let’s not forget, folks, that our main man Ceballos had a two-year stint with Arsenal from 2019 to 2021, and jumping back into the Premier League saddle could be the golden ticket for the 26-year-old. I mean, who wouldn’t want to ride that gravy train once more?

Carlo Ancelotti, Madrid’s head honcho, weighed in on the situation, saying, “Everyone has to evaluate the role they have. When you finish a contract, you have to make this type of assessment.” Truer words have never been spoken, and it’s now up to Ceballos to decide which side his bread is buttered on.
So, will Ceballos take the Premier League plunge once more, or will he keep us on tenterhooks just a little bit longer? Only time will tell, but one thing’s for sure: the race for Ceballos is heating up, and we can’t wait to see where he lands!
