Real Madrid’s management are leaving no stone unturned in their hunt for the club’s next marquee striker. From teenagers to veteran stars, Los Blancos have been linked with several strikers this window.

As the summer window nears its end, it is becoming increasingly clear that the club want to go in the direction of raw talent. A young signing will not only help the manager mould the player to his liking but also be less of a burden financially.

According to reports from Diario AS, Madrid are looking to sign Bayer Leverkusen striker Iker Bravo this summer. This comes as important news because the teenager already has an agreement in place with Atletico Madrid.

Real Madrid’s relations with Diego Simeone’s side are already foul after the pact of non-aggression was broken last month. The move for the Spaniard will only make matters worse.

Not to forget that the Spaniard has also played for Barcelona at the youth level, making appearances for the U16 side before deciding to leave for Leverkusen.

Last season, Bravo made 17 appearances for Bayer’s U-19 outfit scoring four goals and providing three assists. He also recorded three-goal contributions for the U-17 side of the club.

Bravo is clearly a diamond in the brought right now, and one could expect the youngster to see a spell at the Castilla before he makes the move to the first team. While it is certainly a gamble, his signing could reap big rewards in the future.

Amongst the other youngsters linked with a move to the club is Jonathan Burkadt. The 22-year-old Mainz striker offers a similar profile, and the final decision could come down to the transfer fee involved.

Marco Asensio is among the players who are facing an uncertain future at Real Madrid as we approach the second half of the campaign.

The attacker’s current deal at Santiago Bernabeu expires at the end of the season. And despite showing glimpses of his potential during the course of this campaign, his continuity in the Spanish capital is far from guaranteed.

According to Fichajes, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has urged the club to push for an operation to sign Asensio at the end of the season.

The Spanish tactician has identified Asensio as an ideal candidate to reinforce his ranks in the attacking unit. The Real Madrid star, after all, brings in a wealth of experience, having featured in over 260 competitive matches for Los Blancos.

The forward’s tally of 53 goals and 29 assists is not bad by any means either. And given his versatility in the final third of the pitch, he could be a useful addition for Arsenal in the coming season.

But the Real Madrid camp will not too keen on offloading their star player. The club have been impressed by the attacker’s performance, which could potentially lead to a renewal offer later this year.

However, it must be noted that Real Madrid are yet to table any official offer for the attacker. In fact, it is Arsenal who have started laying the groundwork and are expected to meet the player’s agent, Jorge Mendes, in London to discuss a potential move to Emirates Stadium.

It appears Liverpool are in the mix as well, though Arsenal remain the favourite due to the presence of Mikel Arteta. Barcelona, too, had showcased interest in signing Asensio in the summer, so it will be interesting to see what the future holds for the Spaniard in the coming months.
