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.
He is one of the most exciting young players in the world, but media outlets in Spain suggests Marco Asensio could really be about to move to Arsene Wenger’s struggling Arsenal side.
Yes he might be young at 21, but Asensio has established himself as a potential future Ballon d’Or winner after his brilliant performances for Spain’s Under-21 side during the summer, and various impressive short appearances for Real Madrid.
Indeed, the young attacking midfielder looks like he could fit in for Cristiano Ronaldo at the Bernabeu should the Portuguese leave the club – so why would he want to forgo all of that?

So, could Asensio really be on his way to North London? Stranger things have happened
