Liverpool have “proposal” for La Liga hotshot rejected

Liverpool fans here in the Transfer Tavern are still dreaming of Champions League football next season but there’s certainly one player that won’t be joining them this summer, much to their disappointment!

Spanish website Fichajes claims that the Reds had a proposal turned down for 21-year-old Real Madrid forward Marco Asensio, who has also been on the radar of Manchester United.

But Asensio, who has become a key figure under Zinedine Zidane this season, scoring eight goals in 27 appearances, is happy at the Bernabeu and doesn’t look set to leave Los Blancos this summer, much to the annoyance of our Reds-mad barman, who wants to see some more attacking players join the club over the coming months.

The burden on the likes of Phillipe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino has been huge all season and with Divock Origi and Daniel Sturridge still not firing on a regular basis, Klopp will need to think about more firepower for a campaign that looks to include Champions League football next year.

But with Jurgen Klopp being told the former Espanyol loanee isn’t at all for sale, he’s going to have to turn his attention elsewhere as he looks to recruit for what will be a busy campaign next season.

Reds fans, what do you make of this news- disappointed to have not secured a deal? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!
