Real Madrid have their work cut out this summer transfer window as they dive into the market hoping to reinforce several positions across the pitch.

They have already lost four forwards this window, including Karim Benzema, but also important squad players such as Marco Asensio, Mariano Diaz, and Eden Hazard.

Brahim Diaz has been brought back from AC Milan, and Joselu’s signing seems to be on track, but that still leaves Los Blancos with just four natural forwards in their squad. Florentino Perez has confirmed there will be no more signings, but Madrid continue to assess the market for transfer opportunities.

One of the players on their agenda is 18-year-old Turkish wonderkid Arda Guler, according to a report by AS (h/t Madrid Universal).

Guler has been on the radar of several clubs for a few months after his impressive performances with Fenerbahce across the last two seasons. This campaign itself, he scored four goals and assisted three across a mere 20 appearances – 11 as a starter.

Despite his rising market value, Guler has a release clause of €17.5 million, and could be on the move as early as this summer. While an attacking midfielder by trade, he played across the frontline last season, including at right-wing.

Madrid do need reinforcements on the right flank of their attack after Asensio’s exit. While Rodrygo and Federico Valverde have put in multiple shifts in that role, neither of them is a natural winger.

After signing Joselu, Madrid’s priority numero uno will likely be Kylian Mbappe, who has decided not to renew his contract with PSG beyond 2024. Perez and co. want to sign the Frenchman this summer, but it seems the player has no intention of leaving.
