Real Madrid's Asensio attracting interest from Premier League trio

Real Madrid's Asensio attracting interest from Premier League trio

Three Premier League clubs are interested in signing Real Madrid attacker Marco Asensio.

According to Fichajes via the BBC, Everton, Leeds United and Leicester City are among a host of clubs interested in signing the Spaniard after it became evident that he is down in Carlo Ancelotti's pecking order.

The 25-year-old winger could leave this summer, given new boss Carlo Ancelotti has a host of attacking options at his disposal for the coming season with Madrid ready to cash on him if they can find the right offer.

If he does sign for Everton, Asensio may end up replacing another ex-Real Madrid star in James Rodriguez, who could be on the move this summer as well.

The 25-year-old has been with Madrid since 2014, when they signed him from Mallorca and loaned him straight back. Another loan, with Espanyol, followed before he became a Real first-team player from 2016 onwards.
He hit double figures of goals in each of his first two seasons in the Spanish capital. However, his third season was slightly less productive and his fourth was hampered by an ACL injury. His game time increased last season, but he may not have shown enough to revive his Real career.

Overlooked by Spain for Euro 2020, he only has one cap for his country since the start of 2020.
