Premier League clubs Liverpool and Newcastle United are interested in the services of Real Madrid forward Iker Bravo.
According to a report by Fichajes, Liverpool and Newcastle United are keen on having 18-year-old Iker Bravo in their ranks. Bravo has been impressive in the ongoing season for Real Madrid Castilla. And, his performances have attracted a lot of attention of late.
The 18-year-old forward joined Real Madrid on loan from Bayer Leverkusen ahead of the ongoing season. He has done wonders on his day while playing for RM Castilla. Bravo hasn’t been consistent but he has surely showcased the potential he possesses.
His loan expires after the end of the ongoing season. However, Real Madrid do have the option to buy. They can keep the 18-year-old at the club on a permanent basis for just €6 million. But, as per the reports they are not entirely convinced about triggering the clause.
Bravo has been on fire in the UEFA Youth League. The Spain U19 star has scored 3 goals and has 3 assists in just four outings. And, Los Blancos have a few months left to decide whether they want him or would allow him to return to his parent club.
Meanwhile, Premier League clubs Liverpool and Newcastle have their eyes set on the 18-year-old’s situation. If Madrid do not trigger the buy clause, they are likely to push for his signatures. Both the clubs consider him a great option for the future and are willing to bet on him. The fact that he is relatively cheap is also something that might work in the favour of the English clubs.
The Merseyside club are having a disappointing run in the ongoing season. Jurgen Klopp is expected to make a lot of signings in the summer and he is looking a sign a forward. With Roberto Firmino all set to leave as a free agent, it does make sense to invest in a forward.
Newcastle United are also interested in the 18-year-old. The Magpies are on an incredible run in the ongoing season. Ever since their takeover, they have been investing in players as they look to push for titles. And, investing in Iker Bravo is just another step towards their goal.
Meanwhile, it will be interesting to see where Bravo ends up playing in the next season given the interest in his services and Real Madrid’s option to buy.
