It’s difficult to find any real dents in Jurgen Klopp’s heavy armour at Liverpool.
The Reds have definitely proved they are among the very best teams in the world by winning the 2018/19 Champions League and finishing second to Manchester City in the Premier League with a whopping 97 points.
But that doesn’t mean Klopp couldn’t strengthen his squad further this summer, and the newest report coming from El Desmarque links the Reds to Real Madrid’s Spanish starlet Marco Asensio.
If the outlet is to be believed, the Reds are willing to splash around €75M (£67.4m) to land the highly-rated 23 year-old to reinforce their team.
But despite his impressive trophy haul and reputation, Asensio doesn’t seem to be an extremely wanted, or even respected, player among the Kop faithful.
Many of them are urging the club not to make the mistake of chasing this starlet as they believe his quality to be subpar, regardless of the hype.

Asensio have done nothing to suggest he’s worth £75 million despite the highly inflated market. A glimpse of talent here and there but he hasn’t kicked on when given the opportunity.
