Gouiri, who is representing France, tallied five goals in the group stage and is the top scorer at the Under-17 World Cup. The French teenager is a product of Lyon's academy, which counts Frederic Kanoute, Ludovic Giuly, Sidney Govou, Karim Benzema, Loic Remy, Anthony Martial, and Alexandre Lacazette among its manufactured strikers.
At the European Under-17 Championship, Gouiri impressed scouts by scoring a tournament-record eight goals in four appearances. He also scored five goals as France's U-17 team beat Belgium's U-17 team 5-1 in February.
"Amine has a special profile," Armand Garrido, the manager of Lyon's U-17 team since 1992, said. "He has a little bit of everything."
Real Madrid apparently feel as if its relationship with Lyon's board is a route to signing Gouiri, as it was in Los Blancos' sale of Mariano.
