Hey there (@Alialok), while an active integration between Google Cloud & Dropbox is still in the works, the closest feature you could utilize to create & edit your spreadsheets directly from your Dropbox account is co-authoring with Office Online and Dropbox.
The Microsoft Office & Dropbox integration lets you open Office files stored in your Dropbox, make changes in the Office mobile and web apps, and save those changes directly back to your Dropbox. This & this will be helpful to you, though you can test it right now, following the steps below:

How do I create new Office Online files from Dropbox?

#1. Sign in to
#2. Click My files.
#3. Click Create a new file.
#4. Select Microsoft Word, Excel, or PowerPoint.
#5. Sign in to Office Online and create a new file. 
Important notes on creating Office Online files from Dropbox:
  • When you click Create a new file and select a file type, you'll be redirected to Office Online
  • When you create a new file through Office Online, a link to this file is automatically saved to Dropbox for easy access
  • You must have an Office Online subscription to use this feature
