According to the newspaper Ruhrnachrichten (h/t Diario AS), Borussia Dortmund are on the verge of securing the services of Ousmane Diallo, a 15-year-old Spanish talent who has been making waves in the youth departments with his blazing performances.

Currently plying his trade for Deportivo Alaves’ youth squads, Diallo was a target for Real Madrid. The Spanish giants have been monitoring his progress and wanted to incorporate him into the youth team this summer.

Apart from Real Madrid, even Bayern Munich were keen on securing the services of the teenage whizkid, who is regarded as one of the most promising talents born in 2007.

The Spanish talent factory has already produced a couple of players from the same age division in the form of Lamine Yamal and Jesus Fortea, whose capture last year has partly caused a rapid breakdown in relations between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid.

Diallo is a left winger by trade. He is known for his speed and physicality, which makes him very difficult to shrug off the ball.

Knowing his talent and potential, Real Madrid were involved in the race to sign the youngster this summer. But it appears Borussia Dortmund have beaten them to the chase.

The German outfit plans to incorporate Diallo into their U19 squad this summer, thus giving him the opportunity to showcase his quality in German youth divisions, before he can eventually make a bigger leap.

Real Madrid do have an excellent relationship with Dortmund, though, which will be put to the test as the two clubs indulge in negotiations over the sale of Jude Bellingham.

Real Madrid are hoping to sign Bellingham on a reasonable deal, but Dortmund are likely to demand a hefty sum for the services of the young midfielder, who has taken the footballing world by storm with his aggression, maturity and leadership.

It’s no secret that Real Madrid are always looking out for new talents. Over the past few years, the Los Blancos have moved their transfer policy from buying top-rated Galacticos to investing in future generations.

In that regard, the likes of Eduardo Camavinga, Aurelien Tchouameni, and even Endrick for that matter, fall into the same category.

So as they continue to scout for new talents across the continent, a report from MARCA has affirmed that two teams – Girona and Bayer Leverkusen – are being looked upon for player opportunities.

Now, Real Madrid know which position they need to reinforce and for that particular matter, we have reported that Girona right-back Yan Couto is being looked upon.

What about Leverkusen?

Bayern Leverkusen have been the most stand-out team in Europe this season. The collective intelligence under the watchful eyes of Xabi Alonso has culminated in extraordinary results to the extent that they are yet to lose a game so far.

Within the team, a certain Jeremie Frimpong happens to be one of the many players linked with Real Madrid. Apart from the right-back, Florian Wirtz is another Leverkusen player who is being scouted by the Madrid staff.

As far as the right-back is concerned, we have reported that the 22-year-old has a release clause worth €40 million, but that can only be activated in the summer of 2024.

Furthermore, even if the suitor is willing to meet the clause, they must settle on favourable payment terms with Leverkusen.

As for Wirtz, the 20-year-old German is enjoying a great season, having scored eight goals and 12 assists in 25 matches so far. As of today, there happen to be several interested parties and Real Madrid are said to be one of them.

For now, the Los Blancos are only expected to keep a keen eye on the potential targets and any decision will likely be taken towards the end of the season when the likes of Luka Modric and Toni Kroos will decide on their future.
