It was revealed yesterday that Real Madrid are in the market for at least three new players this summer, as they look to strengthen the squad ahead of the new season.

One of the priority targets for Real Madrid is to sign a new attacker. To that end, Diario AS (h/t Madrid Xtra) claims the club are assessing La Liga for a new striker this summer.

It appears Los Blancos are primarily looking for a short-term alternative for Karim Benzema. Although the Frenchman has continued his goalscoring trend, he is nearing the end of his career. Real Madrid, therefore, require a viable alternative for the veteran attacker.

Mariano Diaz has been a part of the team for the past five years. But with just six La Liga goals, he will be allowed to leave the club on a free transfer this summer. The forward is already looking out for potential suitors across the world.

Real Madrid need a more competent replacement for Diaz, which is why they are now searching La Liga. The club would prefer someone who already has experience in Spanish football.

The likes of Enes Unal and Inaki Williams could be interesting options for Real Madrid. The club were linked with a move for Vedat Muriqi earlier in the year as well. The Kosovan forward has racked up 14 league goals this term and could be an interesting alternative for Benzema.

Real Madrid, though, could use a more tactically flexible alternative, who can also operate in the wider areas if required. That is where someone like Williams could be a viable option.

There are no shortage of options elsewhere in Europe either, so it will be interesting to see who they end up signing in this coming summer.

Real Madrid loanee and Almeria player Sergio Arribas is being hailed as a hero after saving a couple from drowning in the Maldives.

Arribas was on vacation in the Maldives with his girlfriend when he noticed a couple struggling to stay afloat while snorkelling. Without hesitation, he jumped into the water to assist them, reports MARCA.

As per the report, the couple had drifted too far from the shore and were struggling to keep their heads above water. Arribas reached them and helped them back to the shore, where they were met by a group of people who had rushed to their aid.

Fans and coaches alike are lauding Arribas for his quick thinking and bravery in a situation that could have had tragic consequences.

Arribas is currently on loan at Almeria from Real Madrid. He made 34 league appearances for the club this past season, scoring nine goals while mustering five assists. He is expected to return to Real Madrid at the end of the season.

Arribas’ impressive performances on loan have raised many eyebrows inside the Real Madrid camp and it will be interesting to see whether or not the youngest becomes a part of the Real Madrid setup in the coming season.
