Real Madrid’s Urgent Need for a Striker: Napoli superstar Emerges as Top Target

Real Madrid’s Striking Dilemma: Victor Osimhen Becomes Prime Transfer Target

One area where Real Madrid urgently requires reinforcement is in the striker position. It came as a surprise to many that the club did not secure the services of a world-class center-forward during the summer transfer window. The departure of Karim Benzema at the end of the previous season, as he joined Al-Ittihad, left a substantial void up front for Los Blancos. While they did bring in Joselu on a season-long loan from Espanyol, it remains uncertain if the Spaniard can lead the line effectively in pursuit of all three major trophies.

The decision by Carlo Ancelotti to alter the formation from a 4-3-3 to a 4-4-2 underscores the pressing need for a striker. To compound matters, even Vinicius Jr is currently sidelined due to injury.

Jude Bellingham has made an impressive impact since arriving at Real Madrid, scoring five goals in just four appearances thus far. However, it’s unrealistic to expect his goal-scoring streak to last indefinitely.

Real Madrid has been heavily linked with Kylian Mbappe in recent times, who, although excelling on the left flank, has substantial experience as a center-forward as well. Nevertheless, he is not the sole player on Los Blancos’ radar.

As reported by Fichajes, Real Madrid is resolute in bolstering their forward line for the upcoming season. Given Benzema’s departure to Al-Ittihad during the summer and the complexities surrounding a potential Mbappe signing, the club has set their sights on Victor Osimhen.

Osimhen has ascended to stardom at Napoli, playing a pivotal role in guiding the team to their first Serie A title since the era of the legendary Diego Maradona.

While Napoli is known for being shrewd negotiators, it is believed that they would command a transfer fee in the vicinity of €200 million to part ways with Osimhen. Hopefully, there will be room for negotiation should Real Madrid decide to pursue the move next summer.
