Liverpool respond to Marco Asensio contract 

According to a report from Spanish daily AS, Liverpool is interested in signing Marco Asensio during the summer transfer season. Real Madrid is expected to seek roughly €60 million in exchange for the Spanish forward’s departure.

Due to his contract issue, Marco Asensio has become one of Europe’s most sought-after players this summer. In 10 days, the 26-year-old will enter the final year of his Real Madrid contract, and his probable availability has piqued the interest of some of Europe’s top teams.

With 12 goals in 42 appearances, the Spanish international was Real Madrid’s third-highest scorer last season. However, Asensio’s role as a backup for Carlo Ancelotti has pushed him to contemplate his future at the Santiago Bernabeu. A circumstance like this has piqued Liverpool’s interest.

Asensio was previously seen as a long-term successor for Mohamed Salah by Liverpool. While the Reds have yet to decide on Salah’s future, if he joins Liverpool in the summer transfer window, the Real Madrid striker would most likely take Sadio Mane’s place in the first team.
Mane is close to joining Bayern Munich this summer, and his departure will leave a big hole in Liverpool’s assault. While the Merseyside giants have acquired Darwin Nunez as a long-term offensive answer, they may still want a wide-attacker, especially with Divock Origi set to depart next month.

As a result, Asensio is a feasible target for Liverpool, who have made contact with his entourage. But, in order to recruit him, Liverpool will have to beat off heavy competition from a number of European powerhouses. Meanwhile, according to Defensa Central, the Premier League giants may have an uphill battle to sign Asensio, with Real Madrid putting a €60 million price tag on him.
Liverpool may be unable to afford to pay €60 million for Asensio, especially given the amount they paid for Nunez this summer. It would be intriguing to see whether they can reach an agreement with Real Madrid or whether the Spanish giants stick to their €60 million asking price.
