Asensio faces a career crossroads as he heads into the final year of his current contract in Madrid, with 19 La Liga starts last season, and 12 cameos from the bench in league action.
Reports from Diario AS claim Liverpool could challenge rivals Manchester United for the 26-year-old when he returns from a close season holiday.
Asensio will be seeking assurances over a first team role, in Madrid or England, and that will be the key factor in deciding a possible €40m move.
