La Liga champions Real Madrid have not contacted the entourage of 22-year-old Napoli attacker Khvicha Kvaratskhelia yet.
According to reputed Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Khvicha Kvaratskhelia is the subject of interest from Real Madrid. But the reigning La Liga champions are yet to contact the entourage of the 22-year-old Napoli attacker. Meanwhile, the youngster is a fan of the Spanish giants.
Khvicha Kvaratskhelia took some time to rise to prominence, spending the early years of his professional career in Russia and Georgia. But his stock has skyrocketed since joining Napoli last summer. And the Georgian international has established himself as one of the best attackers in Serie A in the last six months.
The 22-year-old has made his mark in Serie A and UEFA Champions League and is leading the charge for Napoli in both competitions. Kvaratskhelia has 28 direct goal contributions (13 goals and 15 assists) in 28 appearances thus far. And the player’s progress has captured the attention of several clubs, including Real Madrid.
Real Madrid might have to enter the market for a wide attacker in the summer transfer window. That is because Eden Hazard and Marco Asensio face uncertain futures at the Santiago Bernabeu. And both players might depart from the Spanish club at the end of the season.
Hazard has barely featured for Real Madrid this season and will be on the chopping block in the summer. On the other hand, Asensio is in the final months of his contract. And the Spaniard has seen widespread speculation surrounding his future, with reports linking him with several high-profile clubs, including Barcelona.
Kvaratskhelia has thus emerged as a viable target for Real Madrid. But according to Fabrizio Romano, the reigning La Liga champions are yet to contact the 22-year-old. Meanwhile, considering the youngster is primarily a left-winger, he might not be an ideal fit at Real Madrid.
But the Georgian international can play across the frontline and might become an option for the right flank. But Napoli will unlikely entertain any offers for Kvaratskhelia, especially if they win the Serie A title. And it might take a nine-figure sum to secure the services of the youngster.
