Arsenal and Chelsea will make offers to £118k-a-week ace, ‘one big hurdle’

Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal and Graham Potter’s Chelsea ready to make bids for Real Madrid winger Marco Asensio, according to reports team conversation.

Arsenal and Chelsea set to sign Marco Asensio

According to reports, the Premier League’s big three Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City are all hoping to sign Madrid winger Asensio for free in the summer of 2023.

The Gunners, Blues and Citizens are reportedly all set to make bids for the £118,000-a-week Spain international (pay campaign), he can also play as an attacking midfielder.

Asensio’s contract with last season’s La Liga and Champions League champions Madrid expires at the end of the season.

According to TEAMtalk, Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City “have to overcome a major hurdle if they are to sign Asensio.”

That is – Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City “don’t believe he wants to leave Spain”.

HITC Judgment: Making an Offer

In our opinion, if Arsenal and Chelsea are genuinely interested in Marco Asensio then they should make an offer for the Real Madrid winger.

What’s the worst that could happen?

Asensio would reject them.

If that happens, then Arsenal and/or Chelsea can continue to look for another attacking player to sign.

The Spaniard will be a free agent at the end of the season and we believe on the right wages he would be a sensible addition to Arsenal or Chelsea in the summer transfer window.
