If Tottenham can’t get hold of Lo Celso, then perhaps they should look to Ceballos’ Spanish teammate as an alternative.

Fabian Ruiz was one of the star’s of Spain’s success this summer, and his performances at the Euros will not have gone unnoticed.

He’s an excellent passer, with a keen eye for a killer ball. Not only that he’s capable of scoring goals and can contribute defensively as well.

Ruiz is the complete package and would add something to this Spurs midfield that they sorely lack. He’d make an excellent replacement for Christian Eriksen should he leave this summer.
