Real Madrid have targeted a move for Roma striker Antonio Sanabria during the summer transfer window.

The 19-year-old Paraguayan is currently enjoying a fantastic loan period at relegation threatened Sporting Gijon, scoring 10 goals in 15 La Liga starts this season.

Current Los Blancos coach Zinedine Zidane has been impressed with the performances of the Giallorossi forward, and has asked the club to make a €20 million bid for Sanabria when the summer transfer window opens.

Sanabria has only ever made four Serie A appearances, two for Sassuolo during the 2013-14 season and another two coming off the bench for Roma last season.

Before moving to Italy, Sanabria was at Barcelona and had made 10 appearances for the club’s B Team while he has also earned five caps for the Paraguayan international team.
