Real's Next Two Transfer Targets Revealed?

Real Madrid have struggled more than expected by most after releasing James Rodriguez and Alvaro Morata, and are looking for new transfer targets as a consequence. Here are the latest two names reportedly on Zinedine Zidane's wish list.

Tired of reading? Click through the mini-gallery above to see which two players are linked with Los Blancos.

The Frenchman's side has already lost three games this season, two in La Liga and one in the UEFA Champions League, and have struggled at times to break down opposition defences, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema experiencing individual slumps in front of goal.

After deciding to let Morata and Rodriguez leave in the recent transfer window, Zidane is reportedly looking for new reinforcements, and Olympique Lyon attacking midfielder Nabil Fekir is reportedly high on his countryman's wish list, according to AS.

The 24-year-old, who was named the best young player in Ligue 1 in 2015 but suffered a serious knee injury last season, has begun the new campaign on fire, scoring 12 goals and assisting another three strikes in 15 games across all competitions.

Real, though, will face competition for Fekir, with FC Barcelona, Manchester United and Arsenal reportedly all interested in his services too.

However, Los Blancos could beat their rivals to his signature because the player is apparently a huge fan of Zidane, and previously told Canal Football Club: "If Zizou called me tomorrow, I'd be delighted to move, I'd never say no to him."

In addition, the La Liga giants are reportedly also keen to add Spanish goalkeeping sensation Kepa Arrizabalaga to their squad. The 23-year-old recently received his first call-up to Spain's national team, and his current contract expires at the end of the season.

His club, Athletic Bilbao, is desperately trying to extend their youth product's deal, but the La Liga side and Kepa's agent have not agreed on a salary and buyout clause so far.

"Those who want to stay here, stay here. The player has to make an effort, not just the club. Kepa is very good, but we've achieved what we have in recent seasons without him," annoyed Athletic president Josu Urrutia recently stated, as quoted by AS.
