According to Mundo Deportivo, Liverpool could reignite their interest in Real Madrid attacker Marco Asensio at the end of the 2018-19 campaign.
There is absolutely no question that Asensio is a serious talent, but the Spain international has struggled for form this term.
A record of just one goal and six assists in 28 La Liga appearances is an indication of how disappointing the attacker has been this season.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Liverpool are considering a summer swoop for the 23-year-old, who will be available for less than his £599m release clause.
However, despite Asensio’s quality, it would be fair to say that the Merseyside club’s fans are not too interested in a swoop during the summer transfer window.
It is generally recognised that the Reds need another forward-thinking midfielder ahead of the 2019/20 campaign, but Asensio is not the right signing in the eyes of the supporters.

He is not worth a quarter of that money. Positionless player.

Class player but other options at a fraction of his fee is a more desirable transfer

No offence but this will never happen, Asensio is extremely overpriced and lacks pace, he often plays in a wide position for Madrid, who would he displace in the Liverpool team?

He’s literally the Spanish Lingard.
