Liverpool linked with fresh move for Marco Asensio
As the winter transfer window comes closer and closer Liverpool are being linked with more and more potential transfers.
Reports in the British media claim that Liverpool are linked with fresh move for Marco Asensio.
The 26-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The Whites spent 3.9 million euros to sign the Spain international from Mallorca in the summer of 2015. He has a valid contract with Real until June 2023.
The winger has managed six goal contributions across all competitions in the ongoing campaign.
He is considered to be one of the best wingers in Spain. Asensio has also left his mark at the international stage after netting 2 goals in 34 senior appearances for the Spain national team.
Given that his contract is expiring soon and he has not yet signed an extension, the rumors have only heated up in recent weeks.
Jürgen Klopp wants to sign a new winger and Asensio is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.
The Spain international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of winger Jürgen Klopp wants to target in the winter transfer window.
The former Mallorca man will offer the Liverpool boss the freedom to be more flexible with his formations, tactics and team selections. He has the quality and the experience to make an immediate impact.
According to the report, “Liverpool are emerging as competition for the likes of Bayern Munich and Juventus for Real Madrid star Marco Asensio. The attacking midfielder, who can also play on the wings, has played a key role for Spain at the World Cup so far. While Asensio is not a regular at Real, he is important to Spain boss Luis Enrique. Per The Mirror, Liverpool are long-term admirers of Asensio and will make a move for him in January. However, they add that Bayern and Juve are also interested, and will look to secure his signature. Asensio may move for a modest fee in January, or he may sign a pre-contract to move on a free transfer in the summer.”
Euro Football Rumours
The Reds will have to come up with the right proposal to convince Asensio to join the club.
Real Madrid will not be able to demand a significant fee for Asensio since his current deal is set to expire in 2023.
Good signing for Liverpool?
A move away from Madrid will not be only the best move for Marco Asensio, but also for the club.
Signing the 26-year-old in the winter transfer window would be a masterstroke from Jürgen Klopp.
Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Liverpool.
If Klopp sees him as the right man for his side, Liverpool should quickly make a move to fend off interest from other clubs.
