Arsenal must beat two big six teams to sign Spanish attacker

Arsenal has a long-standing interest in Marco Asensio, but they now face competition from two other Premier League rivals for his signature.

The Spanish attacker seems to be on his way out of Real Madrid, having failed to agree on a new deal with the Whites.

As one of the accomplished attackers in European football, Asensio is spoilt for choice and a report on Football Insider reveals Arsenal faces competition from Tottenham and Manchester United for the 27-year-old Spaniard.

The three clubs have watched the former Mallorca man and believe he can make a difference to their squads.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Asensio is one of the most exciting attackers in European football now and it is a surprise that he is not getting what he wants at Madrid.

However, their loss could be our gain and we should quickly do what it takes to get the deal sorted, especially if we win the Premier League this season.

Mikel Arteta has become an attractive manager that most players want to work with, so he might succeed in convincing Asensio to swap Madrid for North London.

This does not mean adding him to our group would be straight-forward, so we must prepare for a major battle for his signature.

  1. I think Arsenal and Arteta must start believing in the young talent they have. Some of these old players are now bones without flesh. They want big and high paying contracts because they know they are about to leave their pick. We have a lot of young players who can be groomed and be better. Especially if we can win the League, why would we want him? To me even Jorginho is too old for the current crop of players we have.

    1. We need a blend of experienced players and those being nurtured. Having Jorgino there is a good idea

  2. Do we need him?

    Trossard has come in at the right time and provided an excellent boost to our title bid but other than that I would rather see us promoting our younger talent.

  3. Asensio has shown himself a talented player . BUT, at 27 and seemingly not wanted by Real and bound to come with a high fee and ultra high wages, all my instincts tell me this is not going to happen.
    I do not se us trying for him and all things considered, I hope we don’t either.

    I also factor into my thinking, as ever, that JA survives and thrives on the constant false claims or rumours that we are in for this or that player.

    Virtually never though, do we show any interest. THAT ALONE tells me this is not on the cards but even IF we liked him as a player , my first lines in this post still apply!
