With Champions looming, Liverpool know they need to strengthen the squad and that's why they are linked with many players including Real Madrid's Marco Asensio. Asensio plays second fiddle to bale and Ronaldo (we cannot blame him) and wants more first team action and that's why recently he mentioned his desire to leave Los Blancos.
