Real Madrid are keen on signing Borussia Dortmund youngsters Christian Pulisic and Julian Weigl in January, according to a report from BVBbuzz.

Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is ready to freshen up his squad in January after a poor start to the season which has seen his side fall eight points behind Barcelona at the top of La Liga, and he has reportedly placed winger Pulisic and defensive midfielder Weigl at the top of his list.

Pulisic, 19, came sixth in the Golden Boy award last month and has been in impressive form since making his first team debut 18 months ago.

Defensive midfielder Weigl, 22, has also impressed over the past 12 months, and has earned himself a senior national cap in the process.
