Liverpool offered the chance to sign £33.7million super playmaker

Liverpool has only earned 2 points from as many games in the Premier League, and they are already 4 points behind reigning champions, Man City.

Keeping in view the injuries adding up, the Reds must reinforce the squad or they can forget about winning the title this term.

The Anfield club has been linked with Marco Asensio this summer and once again, the Spaniard is in the limelight.

Back in June, AS reported that Real Madrid wanted a fee of around 40 million euros (£33.7million) from his sale.

As per today’s version of Mundo Deportivo (news image provided below), the 26-year-old will be out of contract in less than a year and the Los Blancos have opened the exit door for him.

The European Champions have been waiting for the player to agree on a new deal or leave. With no contract extension done as yet, the La Liga giants are now looking to sell to avoid losing him for free in 2023.

Asensio mainly warmed the bench in the last campaign under the management of Carlo Ancelotti. Moreover, to put pressure on him to leave, Madrid has not given him a single minute in the two official games this season.

The La Roja playmaker wants to feature at the World Cup and knows that not getting regular minutes at the Bernabeu would not help.

Therefore, MD claims his agent, Jorge Mendes, has been moving him around Europe and offered him to Liverpool, Chelsea, Man United, Arsenal, and Milan.

However, none of the above-mentioned clubs have made any offer for Asensio. He needs to find a solution in the last two weeks of the transfer window as now, even Madrid is not willing to agree on new terms with him.

In the end, the Catalan source reported that Jose Mourinho could rescue the attacker by taking him to Roma.

The 29-capped international, who has won three Champions League and La Liga titles, is mainly a right winger but he can play on the left flank and even as a central attacking midfielder. With Liverpool lacking depth in the attack, should Klopp move in to hire his services?
