Leganes are hopeful Real Madrid will sanction a loan move for forward Borja Mayoral, who remains their number one transfer target this summer.
Reports in Diario AS and Cadena Cope stated the 20-year-old – who made only three Bundesliga starts on loan at Wolfsburg last season – is a target for Lega, alongside Athletic Bilbao midfielder Javier Eraso.
"It's a bit like a year ago with Mariano (Diaz), Borja Mayoral is a player that will probably have a lot of suitors,” said Leganes sporting director Txema Indias is quoted as saying by AS.
“Real Madrid have not yet indicated that he will be allowed to depart the club this summer. We will see if he leaves Madrid, but if he does we believe we are favourites.
“This is a case that could go on for a while but we are hopeful a deal will be struck.”
