REAL MADRID have put SEVEN players on the transfer list including Gareth Bale and Arsenal target Luka Jovic, according to reports.
The Gunners are said to be plotting a deal for Jovic, 24, from the Spanish league leaders.

And earlier this season, boss Carlo Ancelotti confirmed that Bale, 32, will leave the club when his contract ends this summer.
The former Spurs man has barely kicked a ball for Los Blancos so far this season.
But he continues to play for Wales – scoring twice in a thrilling victory over Austria during the international break.
A Spanish sports outlet mocked him up as an insect sucking blood from the club badge, branding him a parasite.
The same newspaper, Marca, now report that he is on his way out the door along with SIX others.
They say that in addition to Bale, who will leave on a free, they will test the market with the rest.
Arsenal will prepare for a battle as they try to land Jovic.
They will face competition from elsewhere for the striker’s signature as a number of Bundesliga clubs look to bring him back to Germany.
The Serbia international, who is under contract until 2025, scored 40 goals in 93 appearances for Eintracht Frankfurt before his big move to Madrid.
The Gunners are in need of a forward after terminating Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s contract in the January transfer window.
Boss Mikel Arteta may also have to replace Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah, with both attackers out of contract in the summer.
And Jovic “is packing his bags” already ahead of a summer exit.
The ace already seems resigned to the fact that he will be leaving after he seemingly took a swipe at his current team.
Jovic liked an Instagram post which showed a photo of him, Gareth Bale and Eden Hazard along with a “thoughtful” emoji.
Ex-Chelsea star Hazard is among the seven players up for grabs with AC Milan linked with a move.
The Belgium playmaker has endured a torrid time in Madrid and with the 31-year-old on big wages, it’s thought Real are ready to see the back of him.
The other players thought “likely to leave” the Spanish capital are Jesus Vallejo, Mariano Diaz, Alvaro Odriozola and Brahim Diaz.
