Mundo Deportive is carrying a story in Spain that links Liverpool with Asensio. The market for young wingers is thin and expensive. The market for a player capable of playing anywhere in the front three is even more so. Liverpool are apparently in the market for one and have been linked with Marco Asensio.
The Real Madrid star is in his breakthrough season since the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo and is finally finding regular playing time. He has 28 league appearances this season and 6 assists to his name.
Real Madrid will be reluctant to sell a homegrown player and his contract doesn’t run out until 2023. Oh and he has a £700 million release clause. Any deal for him would be costly. Mundo Deportivo is still carrying this story, despite how unlikely the transfer will be.
Liverpool are already in the Champions League final and on the final day of the season will still be in contention to win the league. So spending such a big amount on a single player isn’t likely a priority for Klopp. Especially since players like Rhian Brewster are knocking at the door.
Even Divock Origi has turned into a legendary match-winner in a matter of days. Do you think Liverpool should go all out for a big name player like Asensio.
