Agent claims Arsenal want to land exceptional Serie A star

InsigneArsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have ordered a bottle of bubbly as the celebrate interest from their club in an exceptional addition.

ESPN quote the agent of Napoli star Lorenzo Insigne as stating Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain are interested in his client’s services:

 “PSG and Arsenal are clubs at the top of the world and their interest is certainly gratifying, but right now Lorenzo is only thinking about Napoli.”

“A great season is also key to reaching his other aim for this year: securing a place for the next European Championship with Italy.”

Insigne has been in excellent form for Napoli this season, scoring seven goals and grabbing five assists, to keep Napoli within touch of the top in one of the tightest Serie A title races in years.

Interest from PSG is unsurprising, as they’ve lured the likes of Edinson Cavani and Ezequiel Lavezzi from the Naples club in the past, but Arsenal are also keeping tabs.

However, both European giants could find things difficult as Antonio Ottaiano told Naples-based radio station Kiss Kiss that Insigne is living the dream in Italy.

“Lorenzo’s dream is to win wearing a Napoli shirt and this year it looks like there are all the requirements to try and bring home something important. I don’t see why Napoli wouldn’t continue to perform in the same way in the second half of the season.”

Would Insigne be an upgrade on Giroud and Walcott? Let us know in the comments below!
