Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
It seems that Arsenal fans have found a new potential target to drool over: Marco Asensio.
Asensio is currently hoping he will be presented with a new improved deal at Real Madrid and is allegedly using Arsenal to achieve his aim.
Despite the 21-year-old’s contract with Los Blancos still valid for another five years, the midfielder is said to be asking for £5.5m-a-year in wages. He is supposedly using the Gunners’ reported interest as proof that he deserves a raise.
The media hoopla implies that Gunners have been keeping track of Asensio for a while now and, sure enough, they like what they see.
The Spain u21 international not only bagged a goal in Real Madrid’s Champions League final win over Juventus, he scored against strong rivals Barcelona in the Super Cup this week. And what a goal it was.
