Arsenal could receive a huge boost in its pursuit of Real Madrid playmaker Marco Asensio, according to reports.
Asensio is regarded as one of Spain’s brightest talents and is being tipped to become a key player for Real in the future. However, the high level of competition at the Spanish club is beginning to frustrate the youngster who wants to play more.
According to Diaro Gol via The Daily Cannon, the youngster is expected to hold a meeting with Zinedine Zidane where he will seek assurances about his playing time.
Should he not be guaranteed increased playing time next season, he could listen to offers from interested clubs like Arsenal.
Wenger is a known admirer of the forward and was recently said to be keeping tabs on his situation at the Bernabeu. Should the player show any indication that he wants to leave Madrid, Arsenal will be one of the numerous clubs battling for his signature.
Madrid will be hesitant to sell but should they be forced to, they are expected to place a hefty price tag on one of Spain’s most talented forwards.
That shouldn’t deter Wenger who appears determined to land a marquee signing this summer. There wouldn’t be a better replacement for Sanchez than Asensio.
