Real Madrid are reportedly keen to sign goalkeeper Alphonse Areola on a permanent deal from Paris Saint-Germain.

Real Madrid are reportedly planning to sign goalkeeper Alphonse Areola on a permanent deal when his season-long loan expires at the end of the season.

The 27-year-old joined Zinedine Zidane's side on loan from Paris Saint-Germain last summer in a deal which saw Keylor Navas head in the opposite direction.

Areola has played second fiddle to Thibaut Courtois for much of this season, making only eight appearances for Real across all competitions, but the Frenchman is said to have impressed during his short tenure at the Bernabeu.

According to AS, Los Blancos would be keen to sign the Frenchman on a permanent arrangement from PSG, who are allegedly looking at AC Milan's Gianluigi Donnarumma as a potential replacement.

The report also claims that Donnarumma's future with the Italian side is uncertain, and PSG could afford the keeper's €6m (£5.4m) yearly wage demand supposedly set by agent Mino Raiola.

Areola has made 107 appearances for PSG and will see his current deal with the French champions expire in 2023.
