Real Madrid are eager to change their current form in both Spain and Europe, as Los Blancos have struggled to be a competitive team during the first months of the season. Their lack of scoring has been a focal point of criticism since Cristiano Ronaldo left the club last year, but they’re working to find a solution to this problem.

The Spanish giants are currently linked with three players that could improve their upfront as soon as they land in the Santiago Bernabeu. According to Don Balon, they could be readying a move for Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane and RB Salzburg's Erling Haaland as options to replace Luka Jovic, who has failed to establish in Madrid.

DB notes that Madrid are willing to offer him the club’s No.9 shirt in an attempt to lure him to the Spanish capital. Right now, Kane is one of the best strikers in the world after netting 171 goals in 263 appearances so far with the Spurs. This season hasn’t been as good as Tottenham initially expected, but Kane has kept his good form, scoring seven goals in 10 matches.

The report claims Florentino Perez is eager to land the player, who is currently valued at €150 million, and would offer Karim Benzema’s No. 9 shirt to Kane and give the Frenchman the No. 11 of outcast Gareth Bale.

As per Haaland, a different report from DB states that Zinedine Zidane has asked the board to get rid of Luka Jovic, with the club now looking at Haaland as a potential replacement to the Serbian striker. The also stated that Haaland will cost around €20 million, with his arrival even potentially being sealed during the January transfer window.

This kid has been doing impressive things in recent weeks, becoming one of the most sought-after players in Europe in no time. Besides these two, some say Los Blancos could turn their heads to Chelsea’s youngster Tammy Abraham, who’s been superb with the Blues.
