Liverpool set for battle with PSG for potential €40million attacker transfer

Liverpool are reportedly one of the clubs interested in a potential transfer deal for Real Madrid attacking midfielder Marco Asensio.

The Spain international looked a hugely exciting young talent a few years ago, though injuries have hampered his progress at the Bernabeu in more recent times.

Still, it seems Asensio remains highly regarded, with Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain both eyeing him up in a potential €40million deal this summer, according to El Gol Digital.

Asensio could be a superb signing for Liverpool if he can get back to his best, with Jurgen Klopp perhaps in need of some fresh blood in that area of the pitch.

The Reds have endured a major dip in form this season, with defences perhaps working out how to cope with Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane at last.
