Liverpool interested in Asensio

Asensio Madrid

According to a new transfer report from Spain, Liverpool is still interested in signing Real Madrid winger Marco Asensio this summer. 

The Reds have already acquired Darwin Nunez and Fabio Carvalho. However, several attacking players have been linked with moves to Anfield. 

Asensio is one of them, with recent reports claiming that Jurgen Klopp is interested in signing the 26-year-old. 

It’s a persistent rumor, with the week beginning with yet another Asensio-related transfer report.

According to Sport [via Sport Witness], Klopp believes that the Spain international might round off his new-look attack at Anfield, following Sadio Mane’s impending move to Bayern Munich. 

However, Los Blancos manager Carlo Ancelotti believes that AC Milan would be a better fit for the 26-year-old. This is as the Serie A champions would be able to provide him with more regular playing time.

Liverpool’s Asensio chase

While Asensio has won three Champions Leagues and three La Liga crowns. He was previously described by Bernabeu icon Guti as a player with an ‘infinite ceiling,’. However, Liverpool may not require him just now. 

This is assuming Mohamed Salah stays. However, Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino, Darwin Nunez, and Fabio Carvalho are great possibilities. Thus, it is difficult to see where the Spaniard would slot in. 

Liverpool’s transfer budget could be better spent elsewhere. Such as midfield. This will allow Asensio to join Milan instead. However, Liverpool have many young players on the attack so they’ll be looking to add some youth and experience to the attack. Thus, reports are that Liverpool are the main bidder for the Real Madrid winger.

He will cost around 51 million pounds, however, Real Madrid will go as low as 43 million pounds. His contract runs out in 2023 and there is no guarantee that he will sign a new contract. This is mainly due to the emergence of Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo. Thus Real Madrid will listen to offers for Asensio.
