Marco Asensio towards the Premier League as a free agent? Aston Villa is said to be planning a summer move for Real Madrid’s Marco Asensio, despite the forward’s desire to stay in Spain.
Unai Emery’s team has been in good form since the Spaniard took over from Steven Gerrard last year and is determined to make a splash in the summer transfer window to strengthen their squad.
The Villains want to sign Asensio this summer and are reportedly prepared to offer him a substantial salary to join, as reported by The Athletic. With his contract expiring at the end of the season, Villa is said to be closely monitoring the situation as Emery is keen to bolster his attacking options, believing that Asensio would improve his team.
Furthermore, incoming director Mateu Alemany is in agreement with the transfer as he prepares to leave his role at Barcelona at the beginning of July.
