Inter are set to face competition for the signature of Napoli winger Lorenzo Insigne, with Arsenal and Atletico Madrid also tracking the player.
This according to today’s print edition of Naples-based newspaper Il Mattino, who report that the 30-year-old could also stay at his current club this summer and then leave next summer at the end of his contract.
Insigne’s current deal with the Partenopei is set to expire at the end of June 2022, and no agreement on an extension is in sight, leaving Inter and several other clubs on high alert as to the possibility of signing him now or bringing him in on a free at the end of his contract.
The player’s current idea is to remain with the Partenopei for one final season, hoping to help them get back into the Champions League places, and then to leave when his contract is up.
Napoli may not be willing to negotiate down on their valuation for the 30-year-old, and are unlikely to accept player-plus-cash offers, which could complicate things for the Nerazzurri who are likely weighing up including a player going the other way as part of a deal for the Partenopei captain.
In any event, it looks as though the Nerazzurri are not the only club with a strong interest in Insigne, with the Gunners and the Colchoneros also ready to take advantage of his contract situation.
