According to the Daily Star, Insigne’s agent has revealed that his client is flattered with talk of Arsenal’s interest.
The Italian is believed to be a target for Arsene Wenger who has lined up a £17 million bid for the player who faced the Gunners in last season’s Champions League group stages.
Insigne scored nine goals in 34 appearances for Napoli last season as he helped the Italian side secure third-place in Serie A, earning them Champions League qualification in the process.
He is now preparing for a trip to Brazil after his good form saw him called up to Cesare Prandelli’s World Cup squad and he’ll soon be jetting off to South America to face England in the group stages.
It’s believed that Wenger has highlighted Insigne as the perfect addition to his attacking squad but will have to wait till after the World Cup for talks with the player.
Arsenal fans. Is Insigne the kind of exciting young player that would slot perfectly into your squad or do you need to instil a bit more maturity? Let us know your thoughts below.
