Everything suggests this would be a vital transfer window for Real Madrid. The Spanish giants have already roped in Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund and are likely to target a striker following the departure of Karim Benzema.

Harry Kane has been identified as the desired replacement for Benzema, though Real Madrid are also open to signing a younger alternative in the form of Randal Kolo Muaui.

Nevertheless, another priority target for Los Blancos this summer is to sign a new right-back. With Dani Carvajal nearing the final phase of his career and Lucas Vazquez having his contract expiring at the end of next season, the club are in desperate need of a reliable long-term option.

Real Madrid have had no shortage of options either. They have been linked with a move for Reece James of Chelsea. They have also weighed the possibility of sanctioning the return of Achraf Hakimi.

In a major boost for Real Madrid, it appears both James and Hakimi are keen on playing for Real Madrid, too. This has been reported by Tomas Gonzalez Martin, who suggests both players would prefer joining Los Merengues ahead of the new season.

However, signing either of these two players could prove to be tricky for Real Madrid. The report suggests PSG are asking around €80 million for the services of Hakimi, who is regarded as one of the best fullbacks in Europe.

James is the more accessible option for Real Madrid right now, as Chelsea are feeling the compulsion to offload some of their star players in order to balance the books. But even then, the Englishman could prove to be a costly option for the club.

But with Los Blancos prepared to shell out up to €400 million this summer, it will be interesting to see how things transpire in the coming weeks.

Real Madrid’s start to the season has been nothing short of exemplary. The Merengues have won every game since the dawn of the campaign, going unbeaten over the course of six games.

However, coach Carlo Ancelotti has yet to unearth the maximum potential of his squad, as injuries to key players and some notable absentees have prevented Real Madrid from flexing their muscles.

Arriving this summer on a six-year contract, Arda Guler has not been fortuitous enough to don the Royal White jersey yet, owing to a knee injury he endured early in the pre-season tour of the US.

But after missing out on the initial stages of the campaign, his return is closer than ever.

Arda Guler aching to make his debut

Indeed, as per Diario AS, he has fully recovered from his injury and is close to playing his first match for Real Madrid.

The Turkish sensation cannot wait to play and apparently will be back with the group on Monday as he can finally shake off the rust and be reintegrated within the squad dynamics.

Guler has missed some important games in La Liga thus far, as well as the Champions League opener versus Union Berlin, which Madrid won with a late Bellingham strike.

However, the season is still long, and the 18-year-old will finally be able to participate in the upcoming matches, with El Clasico also on the horizon.

Oozing talent

After a thorough investigation, the Madrid sports management came to the conclusion that Guler would be a suitable attacking addition who is poised to fit the team dynamics like a glove.

As a result, everyone at the club is excitedly anticipating his return from injury because he will have plenty of possibilities this season.

The player garnered immense attention in the summer transfer window and Real Madrid are thus looking forward to seeing him in action.
