Liverpool have tried to sign Marco Asensio in the past but failed. Now, reports suggests that the Reds have made their third move to hire the services of the Spanish international.
Last month, AS reported that the Merseysiders initially made an offer worth 50 million euros and then after Coutinho left Anfield, they made a second offer of 150 million euros for the 22-year-old attacker.
However, on both occasions, Real Madrid rejected the moves to keep their prized asset at the Bernabeu (AS).

Now, reports suggest (Mundo Deportivo) that Liverpool have made another move and this time it is worth 180 million euros. The Spanish source have mentioned that the offer from the Reds is very strong and Real Madrid will study it.
Last season, the former Mallorca attacker featured in 53 games in all competitions for the Los Blancos, scored 11 goals and provided 6 assists.
His current contract with the La Liga giants will expire in 2023 and as per Mundo Deportivo, the deal has got an enormous release clause of 700 million euros. It is further stated that Lopetegui would want to keep the player at Real Madrid, however, Liverpool are not giving up on their dream of signing him.
Asensio was the 13th most used player in the team last season under the management of Zidane and he would certainly want to start week in week out under the new manager.
