With Marco Asensio set to leave Real Madrid as a free agent at the end of the season, the interest in the Spanish winger is spiking.
Earlier reports had stated that AC Milan, Juventus, and Aston Villa were some of the clubs in the hunt for his signing. PSG had also been reported as suitors, with it being suggested that the French giants were already in advanced talks to sign him.
However, now, according to Alberto Pereiro of Onda Cero, apart from AC Milan and PSG, Arsenal have also entered the race to sign Asensio when he leaves Real Madrid this summer.
This is not the first time that Arsenal have been linked with a move for the Spanish international. Having missed out on the Premier League title to Manchester City, manager Mikel Arteta is looking to add more quality to his attacking unit.
At the same time, he also wants to have better alternatives for his primary options on the flanks in Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli.
As such, Asensio has seemingly emerged as an option for the Premier League runners-up.
A move to the Emirates could appeal to Asensio given that they were one of the best teams in England this season, will be playing Champions League football, and have a good project that is headed in the right direction.
On top of that, the success that Martin Odegaard has achieved after trading Real Madrid for Arsenal could also entice him.
But whether they would be in a position to offer what the cash-rich PSG might throw his way could decide the fate of the transfer race.
An announcement about Asensio’s exit could be made as early as this week, while Real Madrid are also hoping to resolve the futures of Nacho and Dani Ceballos imminently.
Real Madrid very happy with future star Endrick, eagerly awaiting his arrival in 2024 – Romano
Real Madrid’s attacking unit has been crippled by the loss of Karim Benzema earlier in the summer, which was followed by the loss of Vinicius Jr due to injury.
Although Vinicius has returned, there is much left to be desired from the Madrid frontline as we progress through to the season.
Real Madrid, though, are waiting on the arrival of Endrick. The young Brazilian is set to join the Real Madrid squad in the summer of 2024 when he turns 18.
Real Madrid impressed by Endrick
Endrick has already started his preparation for his pending move to Santiago Bernabeu, having performed exceptionally well in his native Brazil this year.
The youngster is constantly working on his game, in order to further improve himself as an attacker. It has left Real Madrid quite happy and eager for his arrival, reports Fabrizio Romano.
The journalist claims that Real Madrid have been keeping close tabs on everything Endrick has been doing, on and off the pitch, at Palmeiras.
And they have received very good reports on the 17-year-old, with the club impressed by how he is putting efforts to improve himself both performance-wise and in other facets.
Despite there being some question marks over his performances, the teenage forward is starting to showcase his potential, having scored five goals in five starts for Palmeiras.
Endrick also learning new languages
Endrick is not only just working on his performance. In fact, the Brazilian is also learning other languages in order to quickly settle into life in Spain.
The youngster can speak Portuguese, but he may have to master Spanish during his time at Santiago Bernabeu.
As mentioned earlier, Endrick can already speak Portuguese, which should go a long way in helping him team up with fellow Brazilians Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo.
Even Eder Militao can speak Portuguese, which should make it easier for Endrick to adapt to life in Spain, at least for the next year or so.
