Both Liverpool and Real Madrid are due a huge turnover in squad personnel in the upcoming summer window.
One player that might be exchanged between the clubs is Spanish forward Marco Asensio.
The Spanish giants have told Asensio that their plans don’t necessarily include him in them, and that a move elsewhere may be best suited to him.
Despite his obvious ability, Madrid are hesitant to give him ‘starting eleven’ status and so if Liverpool want him, we should expect other teams to also be interested.
Liverpool are interested in signing Asensio on a free transfer this summer, as per Jacque Talbot.
With Roberto Firmino leaving the club, the Reds will be in the market searching for other forwards to join their talent-laden options.
Assistant manager Pep Ljinders is a keen admirer of Asensio and will probably be the driving force behind the switch if it is to materialise any further.
His versatility is a likeable feature, with him able to off the right wing but also in a central hub as a false 9, with his ball-striking a key attribute to his game.
Though, this campaign has been a tough one for Asensio.
The Spaniard has only managed to feature in 18 games this season – with just seven starts – contributing to seven goals.
Both clubs are set to race to win Jude Bellingham’s signature as the Englishman looks likely to depart Borussia Dortmund, so maybe both parties will be familiar with each other’s transfer strategy.
