Real Madrid are reportedly targeting 25-year-old OGC Nice defender Youcef Atal with a view to making a move next summer.
Real Madrid are looking for a new right-back amid Dani Carvajal’s injuries, according to a report from Spanish outlet Defensa Central. The Spanish giants have therefore turned their attention to OGC Nice’s 25-year-old defender Youcef Atal.

Youcef Atal moved from Algerian club Paradou AC to OGC Nice in summer 2018 and has since established himself as one of the best right-backs in Ligue 1. The player, who is now a regular for the French Riviera club, has amassed 69 games for Nice, eight goals and five assists.

His progress over the past three years has helped Atal earn a spot on the Algerian national team while attracting the attention of some of the biggest clubs in Europe. And one of his future suitors is Real Madrid.

Real Madrid are reportedly set to enter the right-back transfer market ahead of next summer’s transfer window, with players like Youcef Atal, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Reece James appearing on their radar. And the eagerness to strengthen their right-back arsenal is understandable.

While Dani Carvajal has been a loyal companion for Los Blancos, his recent injury problems have hampered the Spanish international significantly. In fact, Carvajal is currently on the sidelines again after sustaining an injury against Valencia last weekend.

As Alvaro Odriozola doesn’t really play a role in Carlo Ancelotti’s plans and is likely to be sacked next summer once he returns from his loan at Fiorentina. With that in mind, signing someone like Atal could prove to be a prudent move by Real Madrid, especially as Lucas Vazquez is just a makeshift right-back.

The 25-year-old would also be an affordable option for Real Madrid at a time when they need to carefully spend their money leading up to the Erling Haaland pursuit. So while James and Alexander-Arnold offer better quality, Atal could well become the preferred option given the value it offers.
