Liverpool FC are plotting a £67m offer to sign Real Madrid winger Marco Asensio, according to a report in Spain.
Spanish media outlet El Desmarque, as quoted by the Daily Star, is reporting that Liverpool FC are preparing a big-money offer to sign the Real Madrid playmaker.
The same article states that the Merseyside outfit could have a clear path to sign Asensio given Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane won’t stand in the 23-year-old’s way.
According to the same story, Jurgen Klopp is a big admirer of Asensio and the Liverpool FC boss wants to land him to act as a potential back up for Mo Salah.
The Daily Star go on to state that Zidane would want Sadio Mane to be included in any potential deal with Liverpool FC for Asensio this summer.
Asensio has scored one goal and has made four assists in 30 games in the La Liga campaign last term. The Real Madrid star has also netted two times in seven Champions League appearances.
Liverpool FC won the Champions League title last season thanks to a 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in Madrid at the start of June.
The Merseyside outfit have only signed 17-year-old Dutch defender Sepp van den Berg in a £1.6m deal from FC Twolle this summer.
