Brahim Abdelkader Díaz is the sensation of the moment and the Gunner club (Arsenal FC) are well aware of that. Currently second in the Premier League, the London club have set their sights on the Moroccan star.

Brahim Díaz has played a key role for Los Blancos this season. This is the 24-year-old's first full season at Real Madrid. Before that, he was on loan at AC Milan from 2020 to 2023. At just 16 years old he came through the Manchester City youth academy so adaptation would not be a problem for the Spanish-Moroccan player. 

Arsenal have prepared a 70 million pound bid for Brahim and are awaiting a response from Real Madrid. The huge effort by Arteta's side to sign the striker makes it clear that they want to remain a top team at domestic and continental level. 

The club have invested heavily in the signings of Declan Rice, Gabriel Jesus and Kai Havertz and are ready to go the extra mile to strengthen their squad. With an estimated value of 35 million euros, according to Transfermarkt, Brahim is one of the biggest opportunities on the market. 

Brahim's explosion 

The Moroccan star's season has gone from strength to strength. From being unimportant for Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti, he has become the 12th player and the first revulsive player. He has scored in all competitions and has adapted well to Real Madrid's complex rotation. His numbers show that he is achieving more and more. Brahim has appeared in 31 games (only 2 full) this season, scoring 8 goals and providing 4 assists.

After not being called up for Spain, Brahim decided to join the Atlas Lions squad alongside former Real Madrid player Achraf Hakimi, with whom he has a great relationship, who also plays for the Moroccan side, one of the best teams in Africa. 

Morocco were the first African team to reach the semi-finals of the World Cup.

If he moves to Arsenal for 70 million euros, Brahim will be among the most expensive transfers in Real Madrid's history, with Cristiano Ronaldo first on the list going to Juventus for more than 100 million euros. The Portuguese is followed by Angel Di Maria, who left for Manchester United in 2014-15 for 75, and Casemiro who left two seasons ago for just over 70

"We want Brahim Diaz to take part in the Paris Olympics"

Fouzi Lekjaa, president of the Royal Moroccan Football Federation (FRMF), has expressed his desire to bring Brahim Diaz into Morocco's Under-23 squad for the Paris Olympics.

"We want Brahim Diaz to participate in the Paris Olympics," Lekjaa said about Diaz's Moroccan sporting project and his participation in the Olympics in an interview with Spanish sports newspaper Marca. As confirmed by sports journalist José Félix Díaz, Real Madrid, the Spanish football club to which Brahim Díaz currently belongs, is not in favour of allowing its players to participate in the Olympics.

The decision raised concerns about Brahim's qualification. Moreover, the club does not want to make any exceptions and this rule applies to everyone. The journalist explained that there was no room for change in the idea and that it was communicated directly to the players.
