Real Madrid have lost one of their best young strikers in the form of Alvaro Morata, who has joined the Premier League champions Chelsea for the next season. The Spaniard was seemingly disappointed with his bits and pieces role imposed on him by the current club coach Zinedine Zidane and made the choice to leave Santiago Bernabeu in the summer transfer market, leaving the Galacticos to find someone who might be good enough to take up his place in their squad in the next term.

With the possibility of Kylian Mbappe coming into the side, it is quite sure that the 19-year-old Frenchman will be starting for Los Blancos in the forward line. However, the Galacticos are now looking to bring in someone, who will be interested enough to take on the place of a backup striker in the side for the next term.

Right on the top of the list for the current Spanish La Liga champions is the name of the Dutch youngster Kasper Dolberg, who displayed immense talent and played a pivotal role in taking his team into the final of the UEFA Europa League in the last term. The 19-year-old is currently playing for the Dutch Eredivisie side Ajax Amsterdam and is already considered to become one of the stars of the future in the coming years in European as well as Dutch football.

The youngster has made 48 appearances so far for his club and has scored 23 goals. He has got good skills to accompany with vicious shot making and is known for his dribbling and ball control, which makes him a top class player, attracting interests from a number of clubs from all over Europe including the current Champions League winners Real Madrid.

The Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane, who is monitoring the player for quite some time, might be much interested in bringing him in for the next season to replace Alvaro Morata. However, Ajax, who are the current possessors of the youngster, might be averse to let go of their prized possession for the next season.

Dolberg rose through the ranks at the Dutch club and started his senior career with them in 2016. The 19-year-old can be equally dangerous from open play as well as set piece situations and can also supply good balls into the opposition defence in order to provide opportunities for his teammates to score goals and keep his team in advantage.
