Real Madrid and Arsenal Poking Around Atalanta Talent

Rasmus Hojlund has turned the corner after the World Cup break, and his tremendous showings haven’t gone unnoticed in Italy and abroad. On top of Milan, Real Madrid and Arsenal are keeping tabs on the prodigy too, La Repubblica informs.

In particular, scouts of the Merengues were in the stands for the recent clash between Lazio and Atalanta, where the Dane scored and played great. After hitting the net just once in his first 11 Serie A appearances, he has done it 5 times in the most recent 8, all in 2023.

Los Galacticos are searching for a deputy and potential heir to Karim Benzema. Hojlund would be significantly less expensive than Dusan Vlahovic. Arsenal are also in the market for a new marksman.

Atalanta paid €17M to sign him from Sturm Graz last summer. They intend to enjoy him for a few seasons. On the other hand, a mammoth offer could easily sway them, the publication informs.

Our Take on Hojlund

His performances this year have been nothing short of amazing. La Dea was masterful in working on his game during the winter. His traits did the rest, as he has incredible agility and technique for his size.

The Bergamaschi have cashed in on a few youngsters in the past, especially those that came from the youth academy. That’s not the case for the Dane, as they had to spend a decent buck to get him. The fee would really have to blow them away to let him go so soon. Hopefully, the partial takeover by American tycoon Stephen Pagliuca will allow them to hold onto their best players more frequently.
