Atlético de Madrid has set its sights on a new objective to reinforce its attacking line and ensure a constant source of goals. The Colchonero team’s priority is to maintain its competitiveness in the football elite and to achieve this, they have begun to explore options in search of young and promising forwards. In this context, Víctor Boniface, the Bayer Leverkusen star, has become an option of high interest for the Madrid team, according to Todo Fichajes.
Atlético experienced some difficulties in the last transfer market when trying to secure a quality center forward. Although names like Dusan Vlahovic were at the negotiating table, the permanence of Álvaro Morata at that time complicated the desired operations.
Víctor Boniface, new objective for the Atlético de Madrid forward
However, Víctor Boniface’s dazzling performance has caught the attention of Atlético de Madrid’s leaders. The young 22-year-old Nigerian striker has shone for Bayer Leverkusen, scoring 8 goals and providing 3 assists in just 7 games. His ability to unbalance on the attacking front is precisely what the Madrid club is looking for to strengthen his squad.
Coach Xabi Alonso, who knows Boniface very well, is not willing to let him go without a fight. The Nigerian striker is one of the jewels in Bayer Leverkusen’s crown and one of the Basque coach’s favorites. This connection could be the key to ensuring Boniface’s permanence at the German club, although there is no shortage of European teams willing to put pressure on him.
With Victor Boniface’s contract with Bayer Leverkusen ending in the summer of 2028, Atlético Madrid has their sights set on a future in which the young Nigerian striker can play a key role in their attack. The battle to sign him promises to be intense, but Atlético is willing to fight for a reinforcement that could make the difference in the team’s forward line.
