Tottenham Hotspur: Journalist makes exciting live TV claim involving Insigne

Tottenham Hotspur: Journalist makes exciting live TV claim involving Insigne -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

Speaking live on broadcast TV channel 7 Gold, as shared by Area Napoli, transfer journalist Fabio Santini has made an exciting Tottenham Hotspur claim involving Napoli star Lorenzo Insigne.

The Lowdown: Spurs eye Insigne move…

The Italy international is a player who Spurs have been repeatedly linked with since the summer, with a claim from another reporter in Paolo Paganini (via Area Napoli) also having emerged that Fabio Paratici made an offer for Insigne.

Tottenham’s transfer chief, it seems, hasn’t exactly ceased his interest since then with recently revealing that Paratici, as well as West Ham and Newcastle, have already ‘probed the ground’ pre-January.

Insigne’s contract at Napoli expires in 2022 as it stands meaning Spurs could snap up Euro 2020’s star performer for free at the end of the season.

In a development, Santini has now made a rather exciting claim.

The Latest: Santini makes exciting Insigne claim…

According to the Italian transfer expert, speaking live on 7 Gold (via AN), Tottenham are now favourites to sign the 30-year-old.

“Antonio Conte is crazy about Lorenzo Insigne and would like the footballer as early as January,” Santini explained.

“In the winter sales and sales campaign. Lorenzo Insigne, of course, is flattered by the interest of both Conte and Tottenham , but he is undecided. He would not want to break up with Napoli during the current season.

“There have been meetings with Inter and Juventus, but Tottenham is the club closest to the player.”

The Verdict: No brainer?

One of the stars of the summer at Euro 2020, Tottenham could completely bypass his £43.2 million market valuation and snap up for no transfer fee at all – making this move somewhat of a no brainer.

Insigne, judging by his incredibly threatening numbers so far this season, would certainly offer Conte a real outlet out wide.

According to WhoScored, Insigne has averaged a very impressive 3.5 shots per match so far this season – eclipsing the rates of every Spurs star in that regard.

He’s also made 2.1 key passes in the final third every match in that time, again, with no Tottenham man able to match those numbers domestically this season (WhoScored).

Standing out as a real threat when compared to Conte’s current crop, this has got to be a sure-fire swoop on a free deal.
