Arsenal have proven that last season was not a fluke and are putting up a Premier League title challenge once again. They are currently one of the most in-form teams in Europe and sit atop the English top division, ahead of Liverpool on goal difference. Now, it remains to be seen whether they can get the job done at the business end of the campaign. The club already appear to be making plans for next season as well, and a Real Madrid player is in their sights.

Real Madrid are enjoying a tremendous campaign despite not having much squad depth. The players deserve a lot of credit for stepping up to the plate and be counted.

Brahim Diaz has arguably been Real Madrid's most underrated player this season. He did not seem to be a major part of Carlo Ancelotti's plans early on in the campaign, after returning in the summer from a three-year loan spell at AC Milan, but has played his way into the first-team picture.

He has found a way to deliver, whether as a starter or an impact substitute. According to Transfermarkt, Brahim has scored 8 goals and provided 4 assists in 32 appearances this season.

Brahim has also performed in big matches. He has scored in a couple of Madrid Derbies. He also scored the winner against RB Leipzig in the first leg of the Champions League last 16 tie away in Germany. Naturally, clubs around Europe have taken notice.

According to Okdiario, Arsenal are willing to put an offer of €70 million on the table to convince Real Madrid to part with Brahim this summer. At the express request of Mikel Arteta, the Spaniard is a priority transfer target for the Premier League leaders.

An offer of that magnitude might make Real Madrid think. At the end of the day, Brahim is not a regular starter and €70 million is a significant fee, especially with the club being linked with high-profile players like Kylian Mbappe, Alphonso Davies, Leny Yoro and more.
