READ LIVERPOOL VERDICT
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will know all about Asensio’s qualities after the Spaniard netted against the Reds during a 3-1 quarter-final victory last term.
Valued at £31.5million and under contract in Madrid until 2023 (Transfermarkt), landing the ace for the mooted £34million asking price would represent outstanding value.
Capable of playing across the front three there is no doubt the Spaniard would offer maximum versatility to Klopp’s squad and could be the ideal solution to an attacking issue.
