Basel want Luca Zidane

Basel are interested in signing Luca Zidane from Real Madrid, according to Sport.

The 21-year-old goalkeeper has stood only once between the posts for the first team at Real, with 39 appearances sprawled across three seasons for their Castilla side. He is at an age when first-team action is becoming of crucial importance for a player’s development, but with the likes of Keylor Navas and Thibaut Courtois currently vying for a starting spot, Zidane won’t be getting a look-in from his father, Zinedine, any time soon.

Basel have been scouting him and made their evaluations, though they are yet to make an official move. His contract expires this summer, meaning he would be free in terms of transfer fee, but the Swiss side, who have served as a good springboard for the likes of Mohamed Salah, Xherdan Shaqiri, Granit Xhaka, and many others, will likely face stiff competition from France and Italy.
