Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool are set to go head to head in the race to sign Napoli winger Lorenzo Insigne, according to a report in the Daily Cannon.

The forward has been linked with a move to the Premier League in the past and the Emirates was touted as one of his potential destinations.

However, It is Liverpool who have been heavily linked with him in recent weeks but II Messagero claims we are still very much interested in the Italian.

The winger’s future at Napoli is currently surrounded with huge uncertainty having lost his place in the starting xi. He has made only four starts for the Italian club this season and has already provided five assists, impressive isn’t it?

 But the problem is with the player’s wage. The winger is reportedly earning close to £80,000 a week and Napoli feel such is befitting of a regular in the starting xi, hence are not willing to pay Insigne that much anymore.

This has reportedly alerted Premier League clubs who could be more than willing to match the striker’s current wages.

It’s likely that our name has cropped up amongst the interested clubs because of our past links with him and I would like to think we won’t be signing another winger soon especially when our current ones continue playing well.

This is not to rule out the possibility of Insigne joining us because in football, we know nothing is impossible but for now a move seems unlikely. However, we’ll have to wait to see how the striker’s future will be resolved.
