Real Madrid and Spain international youngster Marco Asensio is being tracked by Liverpool as the Reds want to add more threat to their dangerous-looking attack ahead of the 2018-19 season.
Marco Asensio has seen his first-team action reduced since the return of Gareth Bale from his lengthy injury spell and the 22-year-old is reportedly set to end his stay at the Santiago Bernabeu in search of more regular playing time.
The Spain international was Madrid’s revelation during last season as he scored some eye-catching goals for Zinedine Zidane’s team. Despite his ability to change games in the nick of time, Zidane prefers using Karim Benzema to the Spaniard.
Manchester United were heavily linked with a move for the youngster during the transfer market in January but the deal collapsed half-way before the Red Devils turned their attention to Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez.
According to reports emanating from Santiago Bernabeu, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is being impressed with the reports he got from his scouts about the player and he is set to make a move for the youngster.
Chelsea, Bayern, Juventus and Arsenal have all shown their interest to sign Asensio in the previous markets but none of them were able to sign him.
Asensio was twice on target in Madrid’s 5-3 victory over Real Betis. Cristiano Ronaldo, Sergio Ramos and Karim Benzema were also on target.
