Real Madrid want to bolster their attacking options and are said to have identified Liverpool's Firmino as an option.

Real Madrid are searching for a striker, and they have reportedly set their sights on Liverpool's Roberto Firmino as an option for the position.

 The 31-year-old Brazil international will leave Liverpool at the end of the season after his contract expires, but he has yet to announce his next destination.

Real Madrid want Firmino

According to multiple reports, Los Blancos are interested in signing Bobby Firmino on a free transfer in the summer market. 

Carlo Ancelotti's team have had problems in that position this season, with Ballon d'Or winner Karim Benzema struggling for fitness.  

The France international's form has also waned, leaving the Champions League holders to rely on winger Rodrygo in the position. 

Firmino, however, reportedly wants to determine how best he fits into the Real Madrid set-up before making a decision.  

The striker leaves Liverpool after 362 games, scoring 111 goals to go with 79 assists. He also won seven trophies, including the Champions League, Premier League, and FIFA Club World Cup.   

Meanwhile, according to reports from Daily Mail, Benzema has been offered a huge fee from a Saudi Arabian club but it's still being determined which club made the offer.

If Benzema leaves for the Saudi Pro League, he would be another big-name signing following in the footsteps of Cristiano Ronaldo, who joined Al-Nassr in January.
