Real Madrid are about sending scouts out by next week to take a closer look at €50m+ rated Genoa striker Krzysztof Piatek.
Piatek has impressed so far this season, scoring 19 goals in just 21 games for the Serie A outfit.
After scoring nine goals in his first seven Serie A games of the season, the 23-year-old went goalless for five games.
Having proven his form in front of goal and offered a real presence up front for Genoa, it's no real shocker that he has attracted attention from elsewhere.
Sportmediase claim that Real Madrid are set to scout him in the Serie A side's friendly against Wurzburger Kickers in Murcia on Monday, albeit it's added that they could pay in excess of €50m to prise him away from Italy, such is the demand expected to be made by Genoa president Enrico Preziosi.
Real Madrid have continued to struggle this season as they currently occupy the fifth place in the La Liga table after 18 matches, with a 10-point gap between them and leaders Barcelona.
I don't know, but with rumours linking Piatek with a switch to the Bernabeu, they are set to shore up their attacking options and add goals to the team.
