Arsenal dealt sucker punch in their efforts to sign talented attacker

The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern want to sign a top class attacker in the summer, especially if Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil leave.

However, they will not be landing top target Lorenzo Insigne, who has signed a new long term contract with Napoli, the Napoli official website reports.

Lorenzo Insigne was supposedly high on the Gunners’ wishlist as they compile a list of summer transfer targets.

With Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil both about to enter the final year of their current deals, many reports have been linking them with a move away as Arsenal aim to cash in while they can.

Italian international Insigne would have been an ideal target given his versatility in the attacking roles: he operates as a winger, central attacking midfielder and even sometimes as a striker.

The 25-year-old has been with Napoli since he was a teenager and has committed his long term future to the Serie A side, signing a deal to keep him at the club until summer 2022.

The Napoli forward is highly rated by his club and the president of the club believes that he will etch his name in the record books for Napoli and be considered as one of the all time greats.

Arsenal fans – is this a big blow? Who can you target instead? Let us know below…
