Some good news in the transfer market might have come Liverpool’s way today as it’s emerged that Real Madrid are ready to sell Marco Asensio.
AS reports tha the Spanish giants have set an asking price in the neighbourhood of £80-88m for Asensio, who does not feature strongly in their plans for next season.
This is perhaps not hugely unexpected after his slight decline in form last season, while Real have gone and splashed out on signings like Eden Hazard and Luka Jovic up front this summer.
Jurgen Klopp has a rep for improving players, especially young talents, and Asensio – still only 23 – has the raw ability to be a success at the highest level of the game.
The player was once deemed a real wonderkid at Madrid and has a rocket of a left foot that has led to him scoring some pure beauties in his relatively short career so far.
With the Reds arguably in need of more depth behind their first choice front three, there’s definitely room for Asensio in this squad and it could be worth paying what’s asked to bring this talent to Merseyside for next term.
