Several clubs interested in 20-year-old Real Madrid starlet
Real Madrid’s single-minded approach to replacing their successful midfield trio of Casemiro, Toni Kroos and Luka Modric has been evident in the transfer market.
With Aurelian Tchouameni’s signing from Monaco to partner alongside Eduardo Camavinga, the quest to insure the Galacticos’ midfield for the future has been going very smoothly.
However, there are options in the Castilla team that boast of possessing a similar talent. Sergio Arribas is one such young player who is considered to have a very high ceiling.
According to reports from Diario AS, several clubs from both La Liga and other top-tier leagues have contacted Los Blancos over the possibility of signing the midfielder.
Arribas has primarily played as a winger or inverted midfielder in Raul’s plans for the Castilla side this season. From such a position, he scored 14 goals and was one of the brightest spots on the field.
Though his impressive displays earned him eight league starts under Zinedine Zidane, Carlo Ancelotti has not counted on the Spaniard. He has not seen any minutes for the first team under the new manager and is ready to orchestrate a move that would see him in a more prominent role.
Arribas’ talent is ready to be tested in top-tier football, and it is not surprising that several clubs are interested in his acquisition. Earlier, Borussia Dortmund were said to be interested in a long term deal with the youngster and it remains to be seen if they retain their interest.
In any case, Real Madrid would likely agree only on a loan move and not a permanent transfer for Arribas. The 20-yeat-old is undoubtedly gifted and to lose him at such an early age would be foolish.

Real Madrid offered the chance to sign Brazilian striker, one of 4-5 names on radar
There is no secret that Real Madrid might consider a move for a new striker in the coming summer. With Karim Benzema slowly nearing the end of his career, the club are looking for a viable alternative ahead of the new season.
Carlo Ancelotti has been left impressed by the performances of Rodrygo in the centre forward position. But the club could still use the services of a more recognised option in the number nine position.
The Spanish giants are reportedly assessing La Liga for a potential low-cost option. But they are also open to looking through in other leagues, in their bid to add more depth in the attacking department.
To that end, Fabrizio Romano claims Real Madrid are eyeing a swoop for Roberto Firmino. The Liverpool star has become the latest player to be shortlisted by Los Blancos, with his current contract at Liverpool expiring at the end of the season.
Formerly of TSG Hoffenheim, Firmino has a stellar track record of performing in Europe. He has scored 110 goals in 361 competitive matches during his time at Liverpool, winning the Premier League and the Champions League title.
A centre forward by trade, Roberto is known for his tactical flexibility and the ability to shift into wider areas to build up the player.
It makes him an appealing target for Real Madrid, who would prefer a versatile striker in their ranks that can not only provide cover for Benzema but also the likes of Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo.
Real Madrid, though, are yet to hold any discussions with Roberto Firmino just yet. He has just been added to the list of targets and one would expect the Spanish giants to make a move once the season is over and the player becomes a free agent.
