Arsenal, one of the best teams in the Premier League, is said to have made a €40 million bid to sign Marco Asensio from Real Madrid this summer
Defensa Central, a Spanish news site, says that Arsenal and AC Milan are working harder to sign Marco Asensio during the summer transfer window. Arsenal has made an offer of €40 million for the Real Madrid forward, who is 26 years old. The Serie A champions have bid €30 million.
Every day, it seems like Marco Asensio is getting closer to leaving Real Madrid, and his future is a big question mark. Real Madrid won’t sign the Spanish player to a new deal. Asensio’s contract is up in a year, so he might decide to leave Santiago Bernabeu in the summer transfer window.
That’s crazy, since he finished the 2021–22 season as Real Madrid’s third-highest scorer, with 12 goals in 42 games in all competitions. But Asensio’s contract situation is complicated, so clubs all over Europe are interested in signing him in the summer transfer window. Arsenal is one of the clubs that might try to sign him.
Arsenal’s interest in Nicolas Pepe comes after a lot of uncertainty about what will happen to him. Over the past year, the Ivory Coast player has become less important to the Gunners and could leave the Emirates in the summer transfer window.
What’s next for Marco Asensio?
After Pepe leaves, Mikel Arteta will have to look for a wide attacker, and Asensio has become a good option for Arsenal. And the north London team has talked to the Real Madrid forward about the possibility of him joining them at the Emirates in the summer.
AC Milan is also in the running to sign the 26-year-old forward, so Arsenal will have to be careful. But after making an offer of around €40 million to Real Madrid for Asensio, Arsenal is likely to feel confident about signing him in the summer.
Since AC Milan’s bid is lower than theirs, Arsenal will be happy about the chance of getting the Spanish player. As of right now, it looks like Asensio will leave Real Madrid this summer, and a €40 million move to Arsenal is a possibility.
