Liverpool Linked With This Spanish Dazzler: Can This Actually Happen?

Liverpool got off to a disappointing start to the Premier League campaign as an ineffective defence and a spirited Watford side led by Marco Silva ensured a fighting 3-3 draw which saw a disjointed display from Coutinho-less Liverpool. Klopp will be worried about the defensive display but then again, he is not particularly a fan of having a watertight defence.

The brilliant Brazilian, Coutinho, has been subject to a sensational move to the Spanish giants Barcelona, who are looking to bring in a viable replacement for their departed Selecaos superstar Neymar as the attacker has joined the French giants Paris Saint Germain for a world record transfer fee just a few days back. The Merseyside club have already rejected bids from the Catalan club, as they are not willing to let go of their prized possession under any circumstances.

However, the Reds are looking to keep their backup ready, in case they have to let go of Coutinho in the summer transfer market. Reportedly, the Brazilian playmaker has already submitted an official transfer request to the club authority, looking for a move out of Anfield, with Barcelona being his most probable destination.

Liverpool, in the current situation, have come up with the option of making a bid for the Spanish sensation Marco Asensio, who is currently playing for the La Liga champions Real Madrid. The 21-year-old has been one of the most talented youngsters in the recent scenario and is destined to be one of the future stars for his country and club, given his current form.

The player is known for his pace and prowess, whose glimpses have been good enough to impress the football fraternity in the last season in the domestic as well as European leagues. However, the 21-year-old has been restricted to mainly second half appearances in the last term, which might lead the youngster to make a move out of Santiago Bernabeu in the summer transfer window, with a number of big name clubs in the calling including Liverpool.

This has irked a huge amount of interest at Liverpool, given their current intricate situation regarding Coutinho. The Reds are eyeing Asensio for quite some time now, but have already failed to bag the player in last January as well. However, it looks quite unlikely that the Galacticos will let go of their prized possession in the forthcoming days, as he is recognised as one of their future stars whom they will not look to part ways with.
