Agent ‘testing the ground’ for move to Arsenal – January window switch looks possible

Arsenal were one of multiple clubs to be credited with interest in Marco Asensio in the summer window.

Reports from Spain stated that Mikel Arteta was a great supporter of the 26-year-old, but no deal took shape. His agent, Jorge Mendes, was unable to take his client away from the Bernabéu, and now Asensio has less than 12 months left on his contract.

Fichajes.net state the Spain international’s renewal with the La Liga winners is practically impossible because he has been hardly relied upon this season by Carlo Ancelotti. In need of more game time, the winger could leave the club in January.

When discussing his options, Arsenal and AC Milan are tagged. These two clubs looked at the former Mallorca man in the last window and the report explains that everything suggests the same sides will be leading the bid in January.

This claim made in Spain is also echoed in Italy by Calciomercato. They state the Serie A champions are not the only ones to have their eyes on Asensio as the Gunners are also in the picture to sign him.

It’s explained Mendes is ‘testing the ground’, as he looks to build a transfer. Taking Asensio’s current situation at Real Madrid into account, a switch in the winter market seems like a real possibility.
