Real Madrid are reportedly on the market looking to sign a new striker.
The departure of Alvaro Morata – who joined Chelsea on an 80 million deal – created a void in Real Madrid’s attacking depth chart, as the team now lacks a reliable backup to Karim Benzema. However, Los Merengues are already looking at potential options in the transfer market, and two names have sneaked into their agenda.
Real Madrid want a young player who can accomodate to a secondary role within the club. And according to a report from MARCA, the reigning UEFA Champions League champions have set their sights in Domenico Berardi and Kasper Dolberg to fill that role.
Both forwards are among the top prospects in Europe. Berardi played last season with Sassuolo and aside from being an international with Italy at the U21 level, he also emerged as a reliable scoring threat in the Serie A. The 22-year-old netted 10 goals in 25 matches with the club in the 2016-17 campaign.
Meanwhile, Dolberg came out of nowhere last season and dazzled with Ajax, and now several experts have dubbed him as the new Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The 19-year-old was one of Ajax’s most productive players last season, netting 23 times in 48 matches across all competitions.
Both players would come with an elevated price tag. However, they would be very good signings for Real Madrid since they could add depth and made the team better for both the present and the future.
