The Times reported earlier this month that Calvin Ramsay may well be the Reds’ final signing of the transfer window, but according to Romano, a move for Asensio could come onto the table at the end of the window.
Romano claims that Liverpool are very happy with their current squad, but, as we know, anything can happen between now and August and if Asensio is available for a reasonable fee, the Reds could swoop.
What’s been said?
Romano shared what he knows about Asensio and Liverpool.
“I think that would be really difficult. It could maybe be something for the end of the transfer window. In case Liverpool decide to change their position. But at the moment they say internally that they are happy with the squad they have.
“It could depend on the impact of the young players who signed them. For example Fabio Carvalho, who was fantastic in the league at Fulham and who is believed to be ready for the first team to play at the highest level at Liverpool. Of course, while we’re preparing, we’ll have to wait and see how it develops and everything else.
Nothing is in sight for Marco Asensio as Liverpool are very happy with Darwin (Nunez), (Fabio) Carvalho and (Calvin) Ramsay. They are very happy with their transfer window. They are already thinking about new contract extensions. They plan for the future and not just for the present”.
Romano says that this move could depend on the impact that Liverpool’s young players make, and, in our view, that makes this move rather unlikely.
Indeed, Liverpool seem to be intent on trusting their youngsters, and given the quality that the likes of Harvey Elliott, Fabio Carvalho and Curtis Jones have, it’s hard to see these young players letting them down.
Asensio, quite simply, isn’t needed at Liverpool at this moment in time.
