Arsenal are favourites for La Liga forward despite competition from AC Milan

Marco Asensio could head to Arsenal at the end of this season as the Gunners monitor him.

Mikel Arteta has enjoyed signing players from Real Madrid either on loan or permanently, and the Spain international might become his next acquisition.

The attacker has found space in the Madrid first team hard to come by, and he has an expiring contract with them as well.

As they negotiate a new deal with him, Los Blancos are also open to selling the forward for the right price.

This has encouraged some clubs to consider a move for him, and Arsenal wants to win the race for his signature.

Todofichajes claims he also has an interest from AC Milan, but Arsenal is currently the favourite to sign the former Mallorca man.

This is because the Gunners will happily pay his valuation of 40m euros, but AC Milan will want to spread the payment, something Madrid might not accept.

Just Arsenal Opinion

For the sake of squad depth, Arsenal can sign Asensio, but he is not prolific enough to be our main attacker.

He can offer us something extra in attack, and his knack for scoring impressive goals could be useful in unlocking some matches.

But we still need a proven goal-scorer to take us to the next level.

  1. Boy, this chestnut just won’t disappear.

    Are the writers on this website running out of topics?

    Arsenio is just another okay player!

    What especially will he bring to Arsenal, other than some free Real Madrid shirts.

    I am getting so tired of these nonsense (lets hope this one is nonsense) transfer rumors. Lets put them on hold until the summer guys – PLEASE

    1. Jw, The sad and unethical fact is that IF JA stops these constant false rumours every hour or two, the site will have little else to keep it going.

      I loathe and detest false rumours and have been prominent in asking JA to stop peddling them. But reality says that we have lost this battle. Nothing will prevent JA peddling falsehoods; not my pleas for them to start being ethical and having more regard for truth.

      Nothing works Jw. We have lost the battle and these falsehood peddlars have won. Sigh!
