Alexander Sørloth Insists He’s Ignoring Transfer Rumours Amid Supposed Real Madrid Interest

Crystal Palace loanee Alexander Sørloth claims he is focused solely on Trabzonspor, despite reported interest from Spanish giants Real Madrid.

The 24-year-old has bagged 24 goals and six assists so far in the title race, firing the Turkish side to the top of the Süper Lig, as well as making impressive contributions to the his side’s Europa League campaign.

Premier League clubs are also said to be queuing up for his services, including ?Newcastle and ?Sheffield United, despite Sørloth’s failure to make an impact on English soil last season. The striker made 12 appearances for parent club Palace in 2018, creating a grand total of zero goals before he was packed off to Turkey.

?The Eagles might be ruing their decision now, as a buy-out clause in his loan contract means the lion’s share of profit would go straight into Trabzonspor’s pockets in the event of a sale.

Los Blancos are reportedly keen to make the unlikely purchase, seeking alternative back-up strikers for first choice ?Karim Benzema. 

?Luka Jovi? has failed to deliver on the promise he showed last season (along with his £60m price tag) and, despite scoring with just his fourth touch of the La Liga season in the Clásico at the weekend, it is thought that Mariano Diaz will depart the Bernabéu at the end of this term.

Alexander Sørloth is aware of the attention he is attracting across Europe, according to ?Diario AS.

“I have seen the rumours. There are always many… I’ve read about it and I keep getting told about teams that are interested,” he said.

“However, I am focused only on Trabzonspor. There’s a great sense of team spirit here and we want to win.”

Sørloth added: “It would be irresponsible and inappropriate to talk about a transfer at the moment.”

Real have also been linked with Erling Håland and Timo Werner, but coaxing them to Spain won’t be easy; Zinedine Zidane faces stiff competition for the strikers’ signatures, as they both continue their scintillating form in the Bundesliga.
