Real Madrid in talks with striker, Liverpool in four-club race for Motherwell starlet and more transfer news


Los Blancos have turned to the transfer market in search for more firepower after their strike force fired a blank in their La Liga opener against Real Sociedad last weekend.

Free-agent Edinson Cavani has allowed Sergio Ramos’s brother to negotiate his free transfer to Real Madrid, according to MARCA.

Los Blancos have struggled for goals since the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus in 2018, with centre-back Sergio Ramos the 2nd highest scorer for Zinedine Zidane’s side in all competitions in the 2019/20 campaign.

And it is the Spanish centre-half’s brother, Rene, who has been given the power by Cavani to negotiate his move to the Spanish giants. It is also being claimed that Cavani would like to play for Madrid after leaving PSG on the expiry of his contract this summer.

His potential move to La Liga champions would be a win-win situation for all parties involved as while Cavani would realize his dream of playing for Madrid, the La Liga outfit would be able to reduce their dependency on striker Karim Benzema for goals.

The Telegraph reports that Mikel Arteta is hopeful the move of Torreira to the Spanish capital would help the Gunners in their pursuit of long-term transfer target Partey.

Arsenal are in negotiations with Atletico Madrid over a permanent transfer of Lucas Torreira and hope the Uruguayan’s move to the Spanish capital would help them in their pursuit of long-term transfer target Thomas Partey.

Torreira is on the verge of leaving Arsenal this summer after the Gunners made a decision to cash-in on the 24-year-old to raise funds for new signings. He was previously courted by several Serie A clubs before Los Rojiblancos took the lead in the race for his signing.

Arsenal are now in talks with Atletico over the modalities of the transfer, with Diego Simeone’s side reportedly pushing for a season-long loan deal for the Uruguay international. The Gunners are understood to be pushing for a permanent move, however.

Provided the Gunners aren’t able to convince Diego Simeone’s side to buy Torreira this summer, they would reportedly like to structure a loan-deal for the Uruguayan with Atleti an obligation to buy him at the end of the ongoing season.
