Liverpool could miss out on Real Madrid star Marco Asensio due to fresh transfer interest in him from AC Milan.
Jurgen Klopp is strengthening his squad ahead of 2022/23 Premier League campaign after already securing a deal for Darwin Nunez this month.
Klopp is eager to add to his options in midfield, with Asensio a potential target, due his lack of consistent game time in Madrid in 2021/22.
Asensio faces a key decision as he goes into the final year of his Los Blancos contract after making just 19 La Liga starts last season.
However, despite Liverpool’s interest in a possible €40m bid, according to reports from Diario Sport, Asensio would prefer to join the Serie A champions, due a better chance of first team football.
The Italian giants have less squad depth than Liverpool, and Real Madrid could be open to a deal, if Asensio declines to extend his contract in the Spanish capital.
