Real Madrid could certainly do with more options up front even though the club have done a tremendous job with the players they have available, winning ten of their eleven games this season till now. Their only loss came at the hands of Atletico Madrid, away at the Metropolitano Stadium, a tough test for any team in the world.
Joselu has surprised a lot of people with how good he has been in front of goal, impressing whenever given a chance. That being said, he is the only option they have at centre-forward at the moment and is only on loan for the season from Espanyol.
Sooner or later, Real Madrid will need to add to their forward ranks. And it looks like they have a Uruguayan youth international in their sights.
As reported by Fichajes, Real Madrid have set their sights on Luciano Rodriguez as a potential addition. They are one of the clubs that has been closely following his evolution.
Real Madrid interested in signing Uruguayan forward
Rodriguez is 20 years of age and has been a regular part of the Uruguay U20 team for a long time. At club level, he plays for Liverpool FC Montevideo. According to stats from Transfermarkt, he has scored 3 goals and provided 3 assists for them in 21 appearances so far.
Rodriguez looks like a player who is destined to end up in Europe one day. Could Santiago Bernabeu prove to be his next destination?
Real Madrid certainly have a great recent record when it comes to developing South American wonderkids into first-team stars. And it is not hard to see why someone like Rodriguez could be in their sights.
They already have a couple of Uruguayan players in their ranks. Fede Valverde is a regular starter for the club and there are high hopes surrounding Alvaro Rodriguez, who incidentally plays with Luciano for the U20 team.
