ARSENAL AND MARCO ASENSIO TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY
According to reports, Arsenal are showing strong interest in signing Marco Asensio on a free transfer in the next summer transfer window. The report also claims that Mikel Arteta is a big fan of the Spanish winger. Real Madrid are also unlikely going to extend his contract beyond this season. Hence, this will allow him to leave the La Liga giants on a free transfer in the next summer transfer window. Therefore, his agent are also working on finding the potential club for his client.
Chelsea are also monitoring the situation of Marco Asensio. However, at the moment, Arsenal lead the race for his signature. The winger is also open to a move in the Premier League. Hence, his agents were reportedly in England to talk to multiple teams. Therefore, it looks like Asensio will be a man in demand in the next summer transfer window. The report also claims that both the Premier League giants are ready to offer the player high wages and high signing bonus to sign for them. However, Barcelona can also not be ruled out.
BARCELONA ARE ALSO CLOSELY MONITORING THE SITUATION
According to reports, Real Madrid’s fierce rivals Barcelona are also closely monitoring the situation. The report also claims that Asensio is open to making a controversial move. However, Barcelona have also made it clear that they can pay the same wages and signing bonus as Arsenal and Chelsea can pay. Hence, Barcelona is only a great option for him if he wants to continue his stay in Spain. However, it is clear that Marco Asensio is a bargain signing for every club.
This is because a few years ago, Premier League clubs including Arsenal were ready to pay 100 million for the Spanish international. However, Real Madrid rejected all the inquires. This is because he was in brilliant form for the Los Blancos. However, in recent times, his form is going up and down. Hence, Real Madrid tried to agree a contract extension for less wages to protect his transfer value. However, he has rejected all the opportunities.
Therefore, Arsenal have the chance to sign Asensio before the summer window starts. This is because foreign clubs have the permission to sign players from other leagues from the month of January if their contracts are expiring in the next summer. Hence, the winger will have a big decision to make in the next summer transfer window.
