The agent of Napoli star Lorenzo Insigne is set to hold emergency talks with the club ahead of the opening of the transfer window, and Arsenal are said to be monitoring his situation closely, according to the Metro.
Antonio Ottaiano, who represents the Italian international, has expressed his client’s concerns about his lack of game time with the club.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is a known fan of the player, and the player has been on his radar before in the past.
And should talks with Napoli prove fruitless, Wenger may have the chance to finally bring him to the Emirates Stadium.
“His future is not certain. We’re waiting to get a sense of the club’s project and ambitions,” Ottaiano said.
“Also, and this is fundamental, whether the player is still part of their plans. He feels neglected.
“It’s a very simple matter, we’ve been saying for months that we’re expecting a meeting with the club to understand what projects they have.
“Insigne wants to know his future in detail.”
The 24-year-old managed to make 37 appearances across all competitions last season, scoring eight goals, but may not find playing time any easier to come by in north London.
Usually deployed on the left side of a 4-3-3, or a 4-2-3-1, he would be going up again Mesut Ozil for a starting spot.
