Real Madrid will target a new striker in the January transfer window with Liverpool’s Luis Suarez and Radamel Falcao of Monaco top of their wishlist, according to Spanish newspaper Marca.

The Spanish side sold strikers Gonzalo Higuain and Jose Callejon to Napoli this summer, leaving just Karim Benzema and youngster Alvaro Morata as recognised centre-forwards.

Although Cristiano Ronaldo can play through the middle, manager Carlo Ancelotti is keen to reinvest the money received from the deadline day sale of Mesut Ozil to Arsenal.

Reports in Spain suggested that Ronaldo was unhappy about the sale of the German playmaker to Arsene Wenger’s side, with newspaper AS saying he told his national team-mates: ‘The sale of Ozil is bad news for me. He was the player who best knew my moves in front of goal. I’m angry about Ozil leaving.’

Real president Florentino Perez is ready to spend the £42m received for Ozil on one of the two strikers in January, a move which may be designed to keep Ronaldo happy and playing in his preferred position out wide.

Falcao has long been linked with a move to Real but opted to join big-spenders Monaco earlier this summer, along with a host of Europe’s top players including James Rodriguez, Joao Moutinho, Eric Abidal and Geoffrey Kondogbia.

Soon after moving to the French Riviera, the former Atletico Madrid striker was reportedly offered around Europe’s biggest clubs after troubles regarding Monaco’s tax laws, but a move failed to materialise.

Suarez was the subject of interest from Los Blancos earlier this summer but Marca claim the club lost interest in him when they realised a move for Tottenham’s Gareth Bale was a realistic option.

The Uruguayan was keen to quit the Merseyside club for a move to the Spanish capital but Brendan Rodgers and the club’s owners rejected all interest in their star player, including a bid of over £40m from Arsenal.
