Shocking move about to happen in january. Arsenal is one of the clubs monitoring Real Madrid attacker Marco Asensio as he struggles to sign a new deal at the Spanish side.
The Spaniard has entered the last season of his current deal and has not agreed on a new one yet, which has alerted clubs across Europe.
It seems he and Madrid are heading for a peaceful divorce, which is good news for Arsenal, but the competition for his signature is fierce.
If the Gunners wait until he becomes a free agent to sign him, they might struggle to win the race for his signature, which will be shocking.
A report on Mundo Deportivo reveals they now wish to fast-track their move for him and will attempt to add him to their squad in the January transfer window instead.
It claims Mikel Arteta has specifically demanded for the Spaniard to be added to his squad in the winter window.
The future of Marco Asensio continues to be unknown. The Spanish ends his contract with Real Madrid in June 2023 and despite the fact that the white team seems to be offering him a renewal, the player must decide whether to continue at Santiago Bernabéu stadium, without being the undisputed starter, or start a new adventure.
In Italy, Juventus and Milan have been interested in Marco Asensio and their plans were to try to sign him in the summer, but now those plans could be blown up. The Italian press assures that Arsenal, at Arteta’s request, wants Marco Asensio in the month of January. According to the Italian media, Arsenal’s coach has asked those responsible for the signing of Asensio in this winter market, which would be shocking to everyone.
Marco Asensio is right now at the World Cup in Qatar and is focused on the national team. His future will be decided after the World Cup and he does not close the door on his departure from Real Madrid. In principle, for the summer, but the irruption of Arsenal can make him change his opinion.
