Lautaro Martinez is the subject of interest from Real Madrid.
And the Merengues have sounded out a move for the World Cup winner.
But they have several other targets heading into the summer transfer window.
Lautaro Martinez has come leaps and bounds since joining Inter Milan from Racing Club in July 2018.
And his stock has also risen on the international stage, and he was a part of his nation’s World Cup-winning squad in 2022.
Meanwhile, he has helped guide Inter Milan to the UEFA Champions League final, with the progress alerting Real Madrid.
Real Madrid would have ideally entered the market for only one striker in the summer transfer window.
The Merengues have been expecting Mariano Diaz’s departure, with the 29-year-old eager to resurrect his stuttering career.
But this week has produced a bombshell, with Karim Benzema’s Real Madrid future being uncertain.
And such a development will force Real Madrid into the market for a top-class striker in the summer transfer window.
Meanwhile, the Spanish giants have sounded out a move for Lautaro Martinez.
The World Cup winner has been on Real Madrid’s radar for a long time.
So Los Blancos asking for information about him following the latest update surrounding Benzema is hardly surprising.
With Martinez’s peak well ahead of him and considering he has scored 28 goals this season, he is a viable target for Real Madrid.
But it will be interesting to see who becomes the top target for the Spanish heavyweights if Benzema calls it a day at the Santiago Bernabeu.
