According to journalist Paolo Paganini (via Football.london), Tottenham have made an offer for Euro 2020 winner Lorenzo Insigne.
The Lowdown: Spurs prepare for new campaign
Nuno Espirito Santo has been installed as Spurs’ new manager, and the 2021/22 campaign is now fast approaching.
The Latest: Spurs make Insigne bid
“The most important offers [for Insigne] have come from abroad, especially from Tottenham. After the Euros, Lorenzo has many new admirers.”
The Verdict: True talent
If Nuno is able to add Insigne to his squad, he would be signing a player with true star quality. The forward played a starring role for Italy at the European Championship this summer, his two goals including a solo stunner against Belgium, while he has managed 158 senior goals for club and country combined (Transfermarkt).
Would you like to sign Insigne?
With 397 appearances under his belt for Napoli, the late, great Diego Maradona was a strong admirer, even suggesting that Insigne should take the iconic number 10 shirt at the club (via Tribal Football). At 30 years of age, he is not one for the long-term, but his ability right now should be enough to convince Levy to make a real move for him.
