Marco Asensio is linked to the move away from Real Madrid, with Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur keen on signing him.

A report from Football Insider claims that Tottenham, Manchester United and Arsenal are battling it out to sign 27-year-old Real Madrid playmaker Marco Asensio in a Bosman move at the end of the season.

Asensio will be out of contract in the summer, and he has been linked with a free transfer away from Santiago Bernabeu. Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham have been in touch with the player through intermediaries. And it remains to be seen whether they can secure his services at a bargain.

Asensio has been a useful squad player for Real Madrid and could prove to be a quality addition to the Premier League clubs. The Spanish midfielder has started just six games for Real Madrid this season, and he needs to play more often in order to fulfil his potential.

Tottenham need to bring in a midfielder who will add creativity and goals from the middle of the park. And Asensio, who seems like an ideal fit, has emerged as a viable target. Furthermore, the 27-year-old can operate as a winger. And his versatility will be an added bonus for Antonio Conte.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have been heavily reliant on Martin Odegaard as their attacking midfielder this season. They cannot hope to use him every week, and Mikel Arteta will have to bring in someone who will add more depth and quality to the side.

On the other hand, Manchester United need to add more depth to their attack. Asensio could compete with the likes of Bruno Fernandes and Christian Eriksen at Old Trafford. The Real Madrid attacker will also be an option for the right wing, competing with Antony.

Asensio has the potential to succeed in the Premier League. And signing him on a free transfer could prove to be a masterstroke. The Spaniard is at the peak of his career and could be excited to move to the Premier League and showcase his qualities and a high level. The player has the experience of winning major trophies and that could prove to be vital for Arsenal, Manchester United or Tottenham.
