Boost for Arsenal as Asensio remains unwilling to accept Madrid’s contract offer

Arsenal has been handed a boost in their pursuit of Marco Asensio as Real Madrid struggles to agree to a new deal with the Spaniard.

Asensio and the La Liga champions have been in talks over an extension and both parties want to get the deal done.

However, Madrid is not prepared to pay so much money in wages to a player who has lost his first team place.

A report on Marca details that they have offered the Spaniard a deal worth around £3.56 million per year, but that has fallen short of his £5.34m per year demand.

This has been a bone of contention between both parties and the clock is ticking for him to secure his future.

This disagreement hands a boost to Arsenal and other clubs keen to add him to their squad and he can start discussing a transfer now.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Asensio is an accomplished player in European football and his experience on the continent could be helpful to us next season as we return to the Champions League.

He will likely get his desired wage as an Arsenal player, but the chance to play often might still be problematic.

But if he wants a Premier League experience, he might join us in London.

  1. I feel he is a more polished alternative to Martinelli.. This is the calibre of player that we need to give us the depth, quality depth at that, to really compete with the big boys..

  2. He’s technical and has quick feet, can play CM,RM and CF,
    Martineli is a player that gives his all, he defends well,attacks well,Nketiah doesn’t come close to him,I wonder why we criticise him alot, he deserves alot of credit. Since Martineli and Trossard stepped up as false 9,our attack has tremendously improved.

  3. I would pass on Asensio and the wage packet he is asking. Saka and Martinelli have done well on the wings and continue to grow and improve; exactly what we want.

    Trossard has brought a boost and is already familiar with the Premier League and opponents. Personally I think we need a plan B striker more than we need Asensio, but we have to see what Arteta and Edu decide on this Summer.

    As far as additions, the midfield needs the boost more than any other area. We need another dynamic player like Partey, and someone a bit younger, as Xhaka is 30, Jorginho is 31, and Partey is almost 30 now.
