Any hopes that Tottenham Hotspur may have of trying to bring Real Madrid midfielder Marco Asensio to the club this summer may have taken a blow.

The Express report that Liverpool, who beat Spurs in the Champions League final at the start of the month are keen on the Spanish international, however it would mean the La Liga giants wanting to bring Saido Mane to the Bernabeu.

Spurs are said to be interested in Asensio and according to a recent report from The Sun, want the 23-year-old as part of a deal that would take the wantaway Christian Eriksen to Spain – even if it means him initially coming to North London on loan.

Asensio is valued at around £85million by Madrid according to The Express  and normally plays in a more attacking role which would not make him a like-for-like Eriksen replacement.

Regardless of this fact, if Asensio is available he is exactly the type of player that Spurs need to take them to the next level.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. before making a serious comment re buying players you need to have a fair idea of the amount of money available , possible income from selling players , wage structure and possibility of promoting academy players
    — so many of these things are interdependent and really only the manager and chairman are in a good enough position to judge and even then that judgement has to have an element of faith in their dealings with other clubs, players and agents and whilst they take the plaudets for a job well done they also have to accept the brick – bats when something goes wrong — i think we supporters have generally got to trust in their judgement knowing that at the end of the day they are also fans

  2. we know that we are not going to be able to buy but a fraction of all these players that we are being associated with — however the reason for so many names is the need for back up alternatives as inevitably for so many different reasons deals prove impossible and in any event there are no guarantees in the transfer market as that wonderful overseas player may not translate into a top player for us — it is all in the lap of the gods –Daniel and Mauritio
