Liverpool could be set to battle it out for the signing of Mallorca youngster Marco Asensio, according to the SportsDirectNews website.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is heavily tipped to go out and spend big this summer on players, who he feels’ will add to his already impressive squad.
And the 18-year-old winger, who has been compared to Barcelona star Lionel Messi, looks set to attract plenty of attention after emerging as one of the most promising young players in Spanish football.
He has become a first-team regular for Mallorca this season in the Segunda Division, and has had scouts from all over Europe keep a regular eye on his development.
And despite interest from the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona, Liverpool are looking like tempting offers for him at the moment, as they try to persuade him to move abroad this summer.
