Real Madrid Earmark Napoli Striker As Alternative To Erling Haaland

Written By Onyeka Daniel

Real Madrid are putting most of their efforts in bringing Kylian Mbappe to the club for next season but they’re not stopping there.

More Details

They plan to bring in another striker to the team as their main striker, Karim Benzema is not getting any younger and with his recent spell of injuries that has seen the team struggle in his absence, the club are keen to provide competition in the centre-forward role.


Their first choice is in demand Borussia Dortmund striker, Erling Haaland who will become available in the summer for a fee of about €75 million.

While his fee is somewhat affordable for the club, considering the quality of the player, the main work lies in convincing him and his agent to pick them as there are a host of other clubs interested in the player with the likes of Barcelona, Manchester City and Bayern Munich all in the running for his signature.

Due to this tough competition, the Los Blancos have lined up a plan B should they fail to land their primary target.

Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen has been instrumental for his team as he has been in fine form with his goal and overall work rate to help them to the top of the Italian league and the chance to win the Serie A title after a long wait.

The Nigerian striker is valued at €80m by Napoli but has less competition on him and wouldn’t command an astronomical salary like the Norwegian. He’s scored ten goals in the 21 games and has been picked as the first choice for Real Madrid should they fail to land Erling Haaland.


Real Madrid may also be interested in another French striker, Christopher Nkunku, who plays for RB Leipzig in the German Bundesliga.

Nkunku, who can play as an attacking midfielder and also as a winger has been in scintillating form for his club this season, scoring 14 goals and 7 assists this season.

He is often described as a new type of playmaker, as he carries the ball, he creates, he dribbles, he assists, and he scores too and his versatility could become a real asset for the club.
