Liverpool fans on Twitter have every right to be excited by a report which claims that the club is ready to spend big on signing Real Madrid attacker Marco Asensio this summer. According to Spanish news outlet El Desmarque, the Reds are prepared to spend £67.3million on luring the 23-year-old to Anfield before the start of next season as Jurgen Klopp aims to add extra strength in depth to his attack. Asensio, like most players at the Bernabeu, didn’t have the best of seasons last time out as Real Madrid finished third in La Liga and were knocked out of the Champions League in the first knock-out stage. However Asensio is still someone with a lot of quality and potential, which is why these Liverpool supporters are blown away by the idea of signing him. The Spain international appears as though he could be a very expensive addition to Klopp’s squad, but if the German wants to add some real strength in depth, he must be prepared to pay a lot of cash. Asensio could be worth it.
Live4Liverpool has rounded up some of the best tweets below:
Poor season? Sure, but he’s hardly the only player to struggle for Madrid this year.
His quality is obvious, and Klopp would do a madness with him.
Also covers both wings and can play as an attacking midfielder.

Not to mention when he's been played in his correct position (behind the striker) he's quality.
He lit up throughout all the Spain unders teams. Player of the tournament at the U23s euro or world cup I believe.
But cheaper options? When we've "bid" 65mil euros.. Who is cheaper?
