Arsenal facing struggle to sign Napoli striker Insigne

The agent of Napoli striker Lorenzo Insigne has said that it is an ‘honour’ for his client to be linked with Arsenal, but any talk of a possible move is premature, the Guardian has reported.

It has been claimed that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is ready to offer £17m to Napoli for the 22-year-old, who helped his side to third place in Serie A last season and success in the Coppa Italia, with nine goals in 51 appearances in all competitions. He has been at the club for two seasons, having joined from Pescara in 2012.

Insigne’s form helped to earn him a place in Italy’s squad for the World Cup, and with his contract still having four years to run, and Napoli seeing him as a key player, his agent Antonio Ottaiano has admitted that Arsenal will struggle to get their man.

He said: “We take into account the praising reports that Wenger has given about the player. We are honoured that a club like Arsenal could have Lorenzo on their wish list. However, from here to take it to the next level, that is a possible transfer, there is a huge mountain in between named Napoli.

“The club consider him without a shadow of a doubt as one of their key players for their ambitious project. Hence, as of today, I don’t see that there can be any further developments unless Arsenal speak to Napoli directly and Napoli change their view on Lorenzo’s role here.”
