Arsenal enter race to sign Real Madrid star
Arsenal have reportedly joined Tottenham Hotspur and AC Milan in the race to sign Real Madrid forward Marco Asensio.
Asensio has been a key player for the European champions for a number of years, and he is now weighing up a new challenge.
He averaged just 50 minutes per appearance last term, and The Mirror claims that a summer departure is a genuine possibility.
He will enter the final year of his contract in July, and Madrid are bound to sell him rather than lose him on a free transfer next year.
Spurs and Milan can provide him with Champions League football, but Asensio is said to prioritise regular playing time.
That should provide a boost for the Gunners, who are aiming to add more experience to their attack ahead of next season.
Asensio is capable of playing on the right and left wing, but is also comfortable operating from the number 10 role.
His versatility should boost his prospects of regular minutes at Arsenal.
