Liverpool are interested in signing the Real Madrid winger who will become a free agent this summer
Marco Asensio will be a free agent after this season, and Liverpool are interested in the Spanish midfielder who will be a perfect fit for the squad.
Liverpool are seeking a player with the capacity to play at the number 10 position and wants to recruit Marco Asensio from Real Madrid. Asensio, a free agent at the conclusion of this season, has reportedly drawn the Reds’ attention.
Liverpool have a strong interest in Asensio
Jurgen Klopp’s assistant Pep Lijnders is a big fan of the winger, with the Dutchman seeking to incorporate the player into a “dual No.10 system”.
Asensio is reportedly being considered as a Roberto Firmino successor after the Brazilian confirmed last week that he will be departing Anfield at the end of the current campaign after eight years on the Merseyside.
During the course of his time at the club, Bobby Firmino has demonstrated his abilities. It is also time for Klopp and the team to start looking for his replacement as he departs from the Reds. And Pep Lijnders favors Asensio because, in his opinion, the player will be ideal for the role of number 10.
‘NO’ to the Real Madrid contracts
According to the Spanish publication Marca, Asensio has allegedly rejected Real Madrid’s most recent contract offer, making it increasingly probable that he will depart the Spanish powerhouse after seven years and more than 260 games.
Liverpool have wanted the Spanish international for a very long time. It’s interesting to note, though, that the Reds see the Real Madrid forward as a Firmino successor. The 27-year-old is capable of playing at the center, but his best position is on the wing. But, Asensio’s signature will be sought after in the summer.
The reason for this is that the Spaniard’s contract is about to expire. And because he has played only a little over 1,000 minutes of games this year, he lacks the motivation to agree to a new deal with Real Madrid. Asensio’s market value has decreased to €25 million in the interim.
