Liverpool are extremely interested in a potential deal for Real Madrid attacking midfielder Marco Asensio, according to reports.
Asensio broke through into the first team and established himself as a key player under Zinedine Zidane, but saw his stock diminish under both Julen Lopetegui and Santiago Solari.
The Spaniard started just 15 of a possible 36 La Liga and Champions League games under the pair, featuring more prominently on Zidane’s return in March.
However, El Desmarque (via Sport Witness) claims that Liverpool are prepared to ‘throw the house out the window’ to sign Asensio, which basically means they are ready to spend a sh*t load of money on him.
Jurgen Klopp thinks he would be a good addition to his forward line, especially if Mohamed Salah picked up an injury, with the Liverpool boss set to spend ‘close to €75m’ on the 23-year-old.
Zidane would be against selling a man who he thinks is the ‘best left-footed player he’s seen since Messi’ which makes any deal for the Spain international less likely.
