Los Blancos are currently 16 points behind unbeaten league leaders FC Barcelona and are in need some new firepower, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema failing to hit the back of the net as regularly as they used to.
As a consequence, they are targeting two big-name signings after the current campaign, according to La Liga expert Guillem Balague.
"Eden Hazard is a top target and the club is interested in Harry Kane even though they are very aware that his emotional link to Spurs and to his manager, Mauricio Pochettino, plus the fact that Ronaldo does not want a similar striker next to him, make the move unlikely," he told Sky Sports.
"But those two candidates are logically only considered for the (European) summer."
Although Zinedine Zidane's side has struggled this season after not buying any big names ahead of the current campaign, goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga seems to be the only target for the January transfer window.
"Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga could be the only new arrival this January – even though Zinedine Zidane said he does not need a new goalkeeper the last time he was asked," Balague added.
"Madrid are willing to pay the €20 million buyout clause for the highly rated 23-year-old, who might even find himself competing for the No. 1 jersey with Thibaut Courtois in the summer.
"The Chelsea man is another target for Real, who are aware that the goalkeeper would love to move to the Bernabeu."
