Real Madrid playmaker Marco Asensio is rumoured to be on the radar of some of the biggest clubs in Europe.
That's according to a report by the Daily Mail, which claims that both Liverpool and Arsenal are interested in the 25 year old, as well as Italian powerhouses AC Milan and Inter.
The former Mallorca man is said to be dissatisfied with the amount of playing time he's had for Los Blancos so far this season, so a transfer to either one of these four clubs could definitely be on the cards at some point in the next two transfer windows.
That said, Asensio returned to action for Carlo Ancelotti's side on Wednesday night against Mallorca and produced a stunning display, scoring his first hattrick in the capital since arriving in 2014.
After the match, the two-time La Liga and Champions League winner says his manager can rely on him to deliver the goods this campaign.
"We're all very engaged and committed, it's easy to tell," he said after the match, as quoted by Managing Madrid. "We are looking forward to completing a great season. (Coach) Ancelotti can count on me, I'm ready. There's a lot of competition for minutes. The position I played tonight is a good one for me and I will play wherever coach wants me to do so."
Asensio also admitted how grateful he was to be given a chance to shine in the first team again, particularly against a club that means so much to him.
"I'm delighted," he continued. "I had the opportunity to play from the start and I knew I had to take my chance. I've worked really hard for this moment to come. I'm pleased with the win, the goals and that we've been able to keep the run going. It was a special game for me. Mallorca is a club that's close to my heart, as I started out there. They've had a good start to the season and I hope they do well in the rest of it."
Should Asensio perform as impressively as he did on Wednesday night for the rest of the season, the four said clubs might not have a chance in taking him away from the Santiago Bernabéu.
However, if he falls into the fringes of Ancelotti's squad again, expect to see this story resurface sooner rather than later.
