Liverpool and Arsenal are interested in signing Real Madrid’s Marco Asensio as a midfielder.

According to reports coming out of Spain , Premier League giants Liverpool and Arsenal are both monitoring the situation of Real Madrid’s Marco Asensio, as they look to reinforce their midfield options.

The 27-year-old attacking midfielder has caught the eye of both Jurgen Klopp and Mikel Arteta, who are both looking to add more technical ability and creativity to their sides. While Liverpool are also said to be keen on signing Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham, they will reportedly step up their pursuit of Asensio if Real Madrid sign the England international.

Asensio, who can also play as a winger, would bring much-needed quality to Liverpool’s final third, providing more opportunities for forwards such as Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah.

Meanwhile, Arsenal boss Arteta is seeking to add depth to his squad, and the signing of Asensio could be a smart move to add quality to his attack. Reports have emerged suggesting that Arsenal have already lined up talks with the Real Madrid star.

With both Liverpool and Arsenal hoping to make a push for major honors next season, the signing of Asensio could prove crucial. The race is on to see which club will come forward with a concrete offer for the talented attacking midfielder.
