According to Mail Online, Real Madrid are in talks with Genoa to bring their star striker Krzysztof Piatek to Santiago Bernabeu. The Galacticos are having a poor term in comparison to the high standards they had set in the previous seasons and should be looking to add more steel to their lineup, especially in the attack.
Since the departure of their talisman Cristiano Ronaldo, Los Blancos have faced a severe lack of goalscorers this season. While Gareth Bale has been struggling with injuries, Karim Benzema and Lucas Vazquez have been inconsistent in front of the goal and have let their team down on several occasions.
This has been a massive problem for an attack-minded team like Real Madrid, and they are reportedly targetting a number of players including Piatek to beef up their strike force.
The Poland international has been in great form this season and has already notched up 13 goals in 19 matches for Genoa in the Serie A. His superb shot making and ability to take on any opposition and deceive them with his pace and prowess have been the highlights of his game this season.
Real Madrid seems to be building for the future and have brought in a number of young players this season. Brahim Diaz from Manchester City has been their most prominent capture in the January transfer window so far. Players like Javi Sanchez, Vinicius Jr, Dani Ceballos, Federico Valverde and a few more have been seen on the pitch on quite a few occasions this season so far, which might be an indication of their intentions for the future.
While that might be a decent ploy for the future, the Galacticos should also concentrate on their present woes and find a way to solve them. The inclusion of a player like Piatek would be a smart addition to the side as he could give their attack that missing edge and could score goals for them. With his attacking skills, he could be a real menace for the opposition if the Galacticos signs him from Genoa.
Real Madrid have been struggling this season to keep their place in the top four in the La Liga and are set to face a number of challenges with the business end of the season yet to come. Their Champions League campaign has also been in doldrums, and a top quality striker is the need of the hour for Solari’s side. A player like Krzysztof Piatek perfectly fit in this equation, and Real Madrid should sign him up this January and help themselves back to winning ways.
