Spain international forward came up with a respectable 10 goals in 31 La Liga appearances during the 2021-22 campaign, although he only started 19 matches in the top flight and was only named in the first XI twice in the UCL.
The Spain international is also waiting for his first competitive minutes this campaign after being an unused substitute against Eintracht and Almeria in the UEFA Super Cup and La Liga respectively.
With less than a year left to run on his current deal at the Bernabeu, Real Marid are expected to sanction Asensio’s permanent departure this summer before he leaves on a free in 2023.
A move to the Premier League with either Man Utd and Tottenham has been strongly mooted for Asensio, who has also been rumoured with Italian champions AC Milan.
Now, Mundo Deportivo – via Paisley Gates – reports that Liverpool and Arsenal are now favourties to lure Asensio in the Premier League.
