According to the Italian outlet CalcioMercato.it, Arsenal have recently sent officials to the track the development of Napoli winger Lorenzo Insigne.
With the exits of Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud in January, Arsenal could do with summer reinforcements in an attack, even after the transfers of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
as reported by the CalcioMercato.it the North Londoners lately sent scouts to Napoli’s match with RB Leipzig, with one of the footballers they were there to monitor being Lorenzo Insigne.
Rated at £54m by Transfermarkt, any deal to bring the player to the Emirates would be significant, however, is he the direct Sanchez replacement that could turn Arsenal into a top-four force again
And as Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Mesut Ozil provide pure creativity and Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang offer raw firepower, Insigne is the kind of footballer that blends the two like Alexis Sanchez’s contributions at the North Londoners.
This campaign so far the 26-year-old has netted ten goals and made eight assists, helping his team to the top of the Serie A Standings, following on from last term’s impressive return of 20 goals and 12 assists.
The winger has been an absolute stand-out at Napoli for three seasons now and securing his services would be quite a coup considering his possible to improve most teams around Europe.
