Arsenal submit €40 million offer for Real Madrid star

Arsenal have reportedly submitted a €40 million bid for Real Madrid winger Marco Asensio, as per Spanish outlet Defensa Central (via The Hard Tackle). The Gunners are ready to rival AC Milan, who are also believed to be interested in signing the Spanish attacker.arAsensio has 12 months left on his current deal at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Despite scoring 12 goals in 42 games last season, Asensio has found it tough to cement a regular spot in the first team under Carlo Ancelotti.

He has been left out for the majority of the big games and the situation is unlikely to change this summer. At 26, Asensio might not want to waste another year warming the bench in the Spanish capital.

Arsenal, along with AC Milan, who reportedly submitted a €30 million bid, may look to entice him into a move with the promise of more first-team football.

The Gunners signed Ivory Coast winger Nicolas Pepe in 2019 for a club-record £72 million from Lille. However, the left-footed winger has failed to make a mark at the club and currently has two years left on his contract in north London.

As per The Sun, the Gunners want to move him on this summer and willing to let him go for just £25 million. They might look replace him with Asensio.
