Real Madrid are currently lagging far behind their arch-rivals Barcelona in the Spanish La Liga and are currently standing in the sixth position in the league table. They are looking forward to winning their forthcoming matches in the competition and revive their position this term.
The Galacticos are, however, looking good in the Champions League, having won both their matches so far in emphatic style. with dominating displays against both their opponents so far in the form of Apoel Nicosia and Borussia Dortmund.
Their gaffer Zinedine Zidane is satisfied with their current form in Europe and is hopeful that his side will carry the same winning form in their next La Liga encounters as well, which they have already started with a win against RCD Espanyol in their last match.
The Frenchman is wary of the fact that there is a dearth of players who can fill the void that has been left behind by the Spanish youngster Alvaro Morata since his exit during the summer transfer window and is eying a viable replacement for him. Within a number of players who can come into the side as a striker, the name of the German international Timo Werner is presently on the top of his target list.
The 21-year-old is one of the most highly rated forwards in Europe in the current scenario and is plying his trade for the German club Red Bull Leipzig in the Bundesliga. He has already scored 27 goals in 41 appearances for his side and is considered to be the mainstay in their attack, causing problems for the opposition defenders in the last as well as the current season.
Known for his blistering pace and ability to find the back of the net from a variety of ranges, Werner can be a real menace for any opposition in the kind of form he is currently in.
His present team, Leipzig, are well aware of the fact and are willing to keep him tied down for as long as possible. He has three more years left on his current contract but it will be tough for him to resist once Los Blancos come calling in the next transfer window.
The reigning European, as well as Spanish champions, find themselves in some trouble this season, especially up front, with Karim Benzema not being able to score enough goals for their liking. Though they have a good young forward at their disposal in the form of Borja Mayoral, a seasoned striker like Werner will always be a valuable addition to the side. But can Zidane lure him to Spain?
