Italian outlet Rai Sport, via the Express, reports that Lorenzo Insigne’s agent is pushing for talks between Napoli and Liverpool with the player open to a January move to Merseyside.

On Thursday, Calciomercato, cited by the Mirror, reported that Liverpool was investigating Insigne’s situation at Napoli after contract negotiations stalled. It’s reported that Insigne is demanding wages of £100,000-a-week and owner Aurelio De Laurentiis isn’t prepared to put the deal on the table. 

On Wednesday night, Insigne was jeered during a Champions League 3-2 defeat against Besiktas after he missed a penalty. The Italian was subsequently left in tears and it seems his relationship with the Napoli supporters is at an all-time low and he is open to moving abroad.

The report from Rai Sport as cited by the Express claims that Arsenal and Valencia are also interested and could tempt Insigne but if the reports are factual I fancy Jurgen Klopp to sway the winger into moving to Liverpool.

There have been reports that Inaki Williams could join the club but if Insigne joined he’d be a huge upgrade on the Spaniard given his experience and ball-playing ability. That being said, Insigne has a contract with Napoli until 2019 and will cost a fee that is reported to be in the region of £44million.

Just imagine it, an attacking midfield triumvirate of Philippe Coutinho, Sadio Mane and Insigne in support of Roberto Firmino. Tasty.
