Liverpool held negotiations with €80m-rated La Liga forward
Liverpool held negotiations with Real Madrid winger Marco Asensio and set to battle with Man United, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Juventus for the player. Merseyside club need a new prolific forward to improve the front-line, and Spain international is the best choice in this situation.
He has an impressive campaign and proves his worth one more time. Klopp will do everything to add him in July when the transfer window opens again. Red Devils, Blues, Bavarians and Bianconeri also interested in signing him and there will be a battle for the footballer. Marco joined the Spanish club from Mallorca in 2015 with a £5m deal.
He is one of the best attackers in La Liga and a key figure for the club. In this season, Asensio already made 36 appearances, scored six goals and made five assists in all competition. It is an excellent result, and he can improve his consequences during this campaign.
The 23-year-old winger has contracted with the Los Blancos until 2023, and his release clause is nearly £80m. His price could increase and become much more during this season. Spanish forward regularly plays in the Furia Roja squad which is already a big success for the footballer.
Liverpool ready to spend big money on the player as Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane linked with several clubs and they need back-up. It will be difficult to sign him as Real Madrid aren’t going to sell such a prominent figure during the transfer window. Reds also linked with Bayer Leverkusen attack Kai Havertz and Juventus superstar Paulo Dybala.
