Arsenal have reportedly held transfer talks with Real Madrid star Marco Asensio, with the player’s ‘very angry’ mood potentially helping to seal a deal in the English Premier League.
The Gunners have been linked with a move for the Spanish international for some time, and it appears that they are now making a serious effort to bring him to the Emirates Stadium.
According to Spanish outlet El Desmarque, Arsenal have held talks with Asensio’s representatives over a potential move to the Premier League.
The report claims that the player is ‘very angry’ with his current situation at Real Madrid, and that his mood could help Arsenal to secure a deal.
Asensio has been a regular in the Real Madrid side since joining the club in 2015, but he has struggled for form and playing time this season.
He has made just 11 appearances in La Liga this season, and has failed to score a single goal.
The 23-year-old has been linked with a move away from the Bernabeu for some time, and it appears that Arsenal are now making a serious effort to sign him.
The Gunners are in desperate need of reinforcements in attack, and Asensio could be the perfect addition to their squad.
He is a versatile forward who can play anywhere across the front line, and his ability to create and score goals could be a huge boost for Arsenal.
The report claims that Arsenal are willing to pay around €50 million for Asensio, and that Real Madrid are open to selling him.
It remains to be seen if Arsenal can agree a deal with the Spanish giants, but it appears that they are making a serious effort to sign the player.
If they can convince Asensio to make the move to the Emirates Stadium, it could be a huge boost for the Gunners as they look to rebuild their squad.
