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.
Arsenal are reportedly prepared to trigger the €80 million release clause in Marco Asensio’s contract to lure him away from Real Madrid.
Spanish news media Don Balon have reported that Arsenal have resumed their pursuit of their long-time target Asensio. The Premier League giants are bring him down to the Emirates before the transfer deadline.
Asensio has made a name for himself in Real Madrid since his arrival, scoring the club’s first and last goals last season, in addition to picking up 8 other goals and assisting 4 times in 38 appearances.
But, with Asensio not a first choice for Zinedine Zidane, several clubs have been trying to take him away from the Bernabeu. And Arsenal have been monitoring the Spaniard situation at the club for a long time now.
Asensio will bring lots of improvement to the Emirates, with his ease of finding the net, speed and his dribbling skills potentially making him a threat to opposition defenders in the Premier League. Arsenal are thus willing to break their transfer record for the second time this summer.
