Blow for Arsenal as Real Madrid now wants to keep their target

Arsenal has been handed a transfer blow as Real Madrid is now looking to keep Marco Asensio.

The attacker has been a key target for Mikel Arteta’s side recently as they seek to improve their team further.

A move for Asensio seems sensible, especially because they could sign him as a free agent next summer.

The Spaniard had originally struggled to reach an agreement over a new deal with Madrid and seemed to be heading towards the exit door.

He has also not been getting enough playing time at the club, which should make him leave.

This caught the attention of Arsenal, who have been following the situation for a long time.

However, a new report on Ser Deportivos says Madrid is keen to get him on a new contract now and they will work on an improved three-year offer for the attacker.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Asensio has been a fine attacker in European football over the years and he can deliver some top performances for us if we add him to the squad.

However, he will always choose to remain in a familiar territory over changing clubs if he has both options.

We could still be lucky and sign him if Madrid’s offer still does not impress him.

  1. Firstly, what a great result today, although I am little worried about Saka. One good thing is he has a full week to get well (assuming we won’t need him against Zurich)!

    As to the subject of this article…….

    Why would Arsenal be worried that Real Madrid’s “Nosensio” might be off the market?

    Surely we have younger fish to fry!

    Why are we so often associated with players that their clubs want to get rid of? Like “Crabio” from Juventus.

    These players would probably want a lot of money and a lot of playing time, but whose places would they take?

    Since Edu is after a new contract, maybe he should earn his new salary by finding
    A back up for Partey, and also a back up for Xhaka.

    We do need a versatile winger who can play on both the Left and the Right.
    Finally, I think it has become obvious that we need a “side-of-beef” to play up front and “put-it-about-a bit”

    Again, I think we will be lucky to get one, really lucky if we get two positions filled.

    We have 4 games in November, one every three days.

    I believe we need to win against Zurich to win the group!!, We should also try to BEAT Wolves.
    We must not lose to Chelsea (Get a win or at least a draw)

    I think we should then play the kids in the League cup, this would a good competition to get out of.

    If we do the above, by the time the World Cup starts, we will still be top of the Premier League, we will have qualified for the knock-out stage of the Europa League, and will be out of the League Cup!!!!

    Not bad for the first third of the season!!!!

  2. The good thing is some of the injured players are now back in training and Aterta can rotate them to lessen the fatigue. But if our players keep focusing and using every opportunity to put the ball in the net, we will be always a good side.
