L’Équipe report that AS Monaco boss Leonardo Jardim wants to land 26-year-old Real Madrid striker Mariano Diaz this summer.
Diaz represents Jardim’s #1 priority in the centre-forward area, wanting a striker who has Ligue 1 experience, as the Dominican does following his stint at Lyon.
Real Madrid would sell for €20m. Diaz is interested by Monaco, but wants to wait for possible other offers before making a decision. It is anticipated that AS Roma will come in for him should Edin Dzeko depart to Inter Milan.
The Roman side have incidentally offered AS Monaco Patrik Schick, but Jardim does not want the 23-year-old Czech international.
