LIVERPOOL and Arsenal have made bids for Real Madrid ace Marco Asensio.

The Spain international impressed under Zinedine Zidane last season but didn’t get regular game time.

Asensio, 21, started just 11 La Liga games as Real lifted the title ahead of Barcelona.

And Spanish outlet Diario Gol say the winger is attracting a lot of attention.

They claim Liverpool, Arsenal and Juventus have made bids for Asensio.

Diario Gol reckon Asensio wants to stay at the Bernabeu but he is willing to leave if Zidane cannot guarantee him regular game time.

Zidane and Real president Florentino Perez are desperate to keep hold of the winger.

The pair see Asensio as a long-term replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo in Madrid.

Diario Gol add that Asensio is hoping Gareth Bale leaves the Bernabeu so he gets more minutes under Zidane.

Bale, 28, has been heavily linked with a move away from La Liga, with Manchester United keen on the former Tottenham talisman.
