Zidane reportedly favors this EPL striker despite Haaland’s Real Madrid links

Real Madrid are in search for a new striker and for obvious reasons. Karim Benzema, despite starting the season extremely well, has struggled to find the back of the net as of late and marquee summer signing Luka Jovic has been a flop so far. and could be loaned out

And given that this is Los Blancos, they have been linked with some of the hottest names in world football such as Erling Braut Haaland, Lautaro Martinez, Kylian Mbappe, and Timo Werner. However, according to Don Balon (as per AS), Zidane has his eyes on a Premier League striker.

That man is none other than Raul Jimenez. While the Wolves striker is nowhere near being the highest-profile striker, nor the most prolific in the Premier League, the Mexican ace has been impressive since arriving in England.

He has netted 39 times in two seasons and reportedly has the attributes Zidane is looking for, hence why he has requested Real Madrid go out and bring him to the Bernabeu. However, it remains to be seen whether the Blancos board will pursue this target.

Florentino Perez loves his Galacticos and no player fits that tag more than Haaland. The Dortmund striker has scored 36 times in 31 games this season for Salzburg and BVB but he could leave this summer for up to $117M.
