Arsenal wants Real Madrid Champions League winner as an alternative after missing out on Raphiha.

Arsenal suffered a major transfer setback when Chelsea hijacked their transfer for Leeds winger, Raphinha, yesterday.

The Brazilian seemed to be on his way to the Emirates even though the Whites rejected the first bid from the Gunners.

However, Chelsea’s offer is reportedly too much for Arsenal to match, and they will now turn their attention to other targets.

One attacker that has been on their radar is Marco Asensio of Real Madrid.

Asensio may be coming to Arsenal if they place a bid.

He has been constantly linked to Arsenal in the recent years and nothing happened but this current update seems genuine because of the situation surrounding his contract with the Spanish giant Real Madrid.

The former Mallorca man is entering the last year of his current deal at Real Madrid, and the Spanish side is open to selling him for around 30m euros.

A report on Cuatro says Arsenal is one of his most serious suitors, and Mikel Arteta’s side is prepared to add him to their squad in the coming weeks.

It confirms that the Gunners will resume talks with their Spanish counterparts over a move for the Spain international soon if the La Liga champions show an interest in a meeting.
