The Four Strikers Real Madrid Are Monitoring As Benzema Replacement

According to Le10 Sport, Romelu Lukaku is one of four strikers on Real Madrid's wishlist as they search for a long-term replacement for the ageing Karim Benzema.

The Belgian only joined Inter Milan one year ago, when he brought his two-year stint at Manchester United to an end.

The report also claims, however, that he is not their No1 target to fill the spot.

Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe and emerging Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland are ahead of the ex-Premier League forward in their pecking order.

Sadio Mane, like Lukaku, is a secondary target of Madrid president Florentino Perez.

Lukaku, however, still has one more match left to play before his mind can turn to any potential transfer speculation.

And as well as the Europa League trophy, history could be on the line for the 27-year-old.

Should he score in Friday's final against Sevilla, he will match his idol Ronaldo's 22-year-old record for most goals in a debut season for the Nerazzurri.

And should he net twice, taking his overall tally for the season up to 35, he will earn the record outright.
