Inter will look to bring in Lorenzo Insigne from Napoli if they feel that Alexis Sanchez cannot be relied on due to injuries.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that with the club still uncertain of whether Sanchez’s fitness issues will rule him out of much of the season, they could prioritize Insigne’s arrival before the end of the transfer window.
Insigne has emerged as a target for the Nerazzurri, with the club monitoring the 30-year-old’s contract situation at the Partenopei where renewal talks are stalled and the winger is out of contract next summer.
No decisive push has been made for the Neapolitan captain yet, but should the Nerazzurri feel that Sanchez is unfit to be relied upon for the upcoming season, then they could see Insigne as a direct replacement for the Chilean in the squad.
It remains to be seen the extent of the financial commitment that the Nerazzurri would put towards Insigne’s signing in this case but they would definitely see him as a major option to complete the attack.
