Arsenal have reportedly made a bid to sign Real Madrid winger Marco Asensio.
Spanish Publication Don Balon via the Daily Cannon claim Arsenal are interested in signing Asensio this summer.
Primarily a left winger, Asensio has established himself as one of La Liga’s brightest prospect and is highly rated at the Bernabeu.
Although he enjoyed a wonderful season at Madrid last term, winning the La Liga and Champions League title, he was still behind the famous BBC and Isco in Zidane’s pecking order.
Arsenal who are in the market for a new winger has now made a ‘huge offer’ for the Spaniard.
However, Arsenal’s chances of being successful looks slim as Madrid do not have any intention to sell the playmaker who is also not in any rush to leave the Bernabeu.
Wenger is a known admirer of the gifted playmaker but knows Arsenal’s chances of signing the winger this summer is almost zero.
The boss is in the market for a new wide man, preferably a left winger to replace Alexis Sanchez and has seen several attempts to sign Lemar frustrated by Monaco. Asensio will be a good option, but would even be more difficult to sign.
Asensio’s teammate, Lucas Vazquez is also being linked with a move to Arsenal as Wenger begins to consider alternatives to Lemar.
