According to the reports furnished by AS, ‘Liverpool have got into full fight mode to hire the services of the Spanish international from La Liga champions, Real Madrid.’
Also according to a story by Calcio Mercato, the Anfield outfit came forward for Asensio to replace Sadio Mane. The Italian news outlet also mentioned that the reigning Serie A champions AC Milan also registered interest in Marco Asensio. However, unlike Jurgen Klopp, Milan boss Stefen Pioli can guarantee Asensio a starting spot.
Now coming to the transfer fee, Real Madrid will at least demand a reported £30 million for the versatile forward. The club cannot ask more because they are also keeping in mind that next season he will be free. Corriere Dello Sport is also saying that the decision to leave the Spanish international is because he is refusing to sign a new contract.

Arsenal also registered interest in Asensio. The club made 3 signings for the summer until now. But it looks like the Gunners summer transfer window will now start in full swing. As reported by Sport Witness, Spanish outlet Mundo Deprtivo claims that their interest in Real Madrid’s Marco Asensio is serious.
The former Mallorca player made a total of 42 appearances for his side this campaign. In that time, he managed to score 12 goals and registered 2 assists in total. He also played a part in lifting the double for his side as Real Madrid clinched both the La Liga and UEFA Champions League this season.
Asensio also earned 29 caps for the La Roja. He is quite versatile and during his time in the Spanish capital, he played several roles and positions. But last year in Euros 2020, Luis Enrique, the Spain manager left him out of the squad for the tournament. Now he needs regular football somewhere to make a comeback for his national side.
