La Liga champions Real Madrid are reportedly mulling over signing German attacker Serge Gnabry from Bayern Munich this summer.

According to a report by Spanish outlet Fichajes, Serge Gnabry is the subject of interest from Real Madrid. The German attacker has had to share game time at Bayern Munich this season. And that is compelling Los Blancos to launch the offensive for him in the summer transfer window.

Serge Gnabry was once a promising attacking prospect struggling to make his mark in the Premier League. Since then, he has come a long way, leaving Arsenal before arriving at Bayern Munich. And the 27-year-old has been a pivotal figure for the Bavarian giants for much of his stint with them.

But Gnabry’s importance in the Bayern Munich squad has reduced this season. The German international still has a decent tally of 11 goals and 11 assists in 33 appearances thus far. However, the drop in the player’s stature has captured the attention of several clubs, including Real Madrid.

Real Madrid will likely enter the market for an offensive reinforcement in the summer transfer window. And there are a couple of reasons why Los Blancos might have to scour the market. Firstly, Karim Benzema is in the twilight of his career and has suffered from fitness issues this season.

In addition, Eden Hazard and Marco Asensio face uncertain futures at the Santiago Bernabeu. While Hazard will likely leave Real Madrid to resurrect his stuttering career, Asensio is in the final months of his contract. So the Merengues need to be ready to make clever additions to the first-team squad. And Gnabry has emerged as a viable target.

But the 27-year-old is not the only Bayern Munich attacker on Real Madrid’s radar, with Kingsley Coman also a reported target. In addition, the reigning La Liga champions have several other young forwards on their shortlist, including Rafael Leao. But unlike the others, Gnabry is a more ideal target.

That is because the German international is more versatile and can play across the frontline. And with Benzema’s fitness woes not going away, signing the former Arsenal attacker might be what the doctor ordered. So it will be interesting to see if Gnabry becomes a top target for Real Madrid in the summer.
