Marco Asensio has emerged as one of the most sought-after young players in Europe. Jürgen Klopp is, ostensibly, one of the Balearic midfielder's admirers.
Liverpool lodge Asensio bid
Last night, radio programme El Partidazo de Cope informed that Liverpool placed a bid of €50 million for Asensio, and AS is able to corroborate this information.
Real Madrid, however, have no intention of selling the player, who scored the final goal in Madrid’s 4-2 Champions League triumph over Bayern Munich. Asensio himself is also understood to be content at the club.

A big part of Zidane's plans
AS has been informed that Zinedine Zidane has complete faith in Asensio. The Madrid coach plans to give the 21 year old a key role in his team next season.
In fact, the Frenchman has made the club aware that he is willing to sell James, in order to advance Asensio’s development.
