Real Madrid scouting River Plate keeper Arturo Battalla Barga

Real Madrid are tracking River Plate youngster Arturo Battalla Barga.

Barely 18, the young goalkeeper is yet to make his senior debut for River, but is an Argentina U20 international.

Real have already snapped up teens Marco Asensio (Mallorca) and Mink Peeters (Ajax) in recent weeks and are now focusing on Barga, says TMW.

Real have been scouting the keeper this season and a January move cannot be discounted.

The Spanish giants have increased their transfer budget for the club's youth team in order to attract the best young players from around the world.
