Liverpool FC line up £158m bid for Real Madrid star – report
Liverpool FC are preparing a big-money bid to try and sign Marco Asensio from Real Madrid this summer, according to reports
Liverpool FC are preparing a staggering £158m bid to try and sign Marco Asensio from Real Madrid this summer, according to reports in the British media.
The Daily Mirror is quoting unnamed sources in Spain as saying that the Reds are keen on a move to bring the talented attacker to Anfield this summer and they are prepared to fork out a huge transfer fee to get their man.
According to the same report, Liverpool FC have contacted Real Madrid about the possibility of signing the 22-year-old attacker for a huge transfer fee.
The same story says that Real Madrid have not ruled out the possibility of selling Asensio for a big-money fee this summer because they are still hopeful of concluding a deal to bring in Neymar from Paris Saint-Germain.
Asensio featured in 53 of Real Madrid’s 62 games last season, but many of those appearances were from the bench.
Liverpool FC are thought to be on the lookout for a number of quality new signings this summer as Jurgen Klopp looks to build a squad capable of winning the title next season.
The Reds are still searching for their first major trophy under Klopp after they finished fourth in the table last term and reached the Champions League final.
