In a recent report, Fichajes stated that Real Madrid are facing stiff competition for Eintracht Frankfurt striker Randal Kolo Muani. It has been claimed that Los Blancos will have to rival Barcelona and Bayern Munich in the race to sign the France international during this summer transfer period.
Kolo Muani’s Impressive Form At The Deutsche Bank Park
Kolo Muani has proven himself to be a prolific striker in German football as he has managed to put in several influential displays as the spearhead of Frankfurt’s attack. The 24-year-old has scored 20 goals and earned 14 assists in 40 appearances for his current club this season in multiple competitions.
The Bondy-born talent has been a consistent performer in the final third based on his average of 2.3 shots, 1.1 key passes and 2.3 dribbles per 90 minutes in Bundesliga. However, he has to find a way to improve his link-up play up top after he completed just 66.5% of his attempted passes in the German top tier (stats via whoscored).
Kolo Muani is under contract at the German club until the summer of 2027. Hence, it will be difficult for Los Blancos to arrange a move for him at the end of this campaign.
Real Madrid Face Stiff Competition For Kolo Muani: Is He Worth The Fight?
Kolo Muani excels at finding space for himself to get a few strikes in at goal. He is a lethal finisher in front of the opposition goal and can make a few dangerous runs with the ball as well. The French sensation has got the vision to orchestrate a handful of inviting chances for others around him. However, he can sometimes give away the ball cheaply which is something that he needs to rectify in the future.
We can expect Kolo Muani to bring a lot of firepower to Real Madrid head coach Carlo Ancelotti‘s frontline. He has what it takes to offer some decent competition for Karim Benzema at the Madrid club.
Kolo Muani will undoubtedly serve as an upgrade over Mariano Diaz who has struggled to earn regular first-team football at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium recently. All in all, he is definitely worth the fight, so Ancelotti should try everything in his power to get him on board in this off-season.
