Inter are yet to make a formal approach for Napoli forward Lorenzo Insigne but are keeping close tabs on him ahead of a potential move.
As reported in today’s newspaper edition of Il Mattino, Nerazzurri CEO Beppe Marotta has long been an admirer of the Italy international and is closely monitoring his contract situation at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.
Insigne’s current deal expires next summer and he is yet to pen a new deal, paving the way for a free transfer at the end of the season.
Inter are yet to approach the player with an offer and have not been in communication with his agent, Vincenzo Pisacane, despite a strong relationship due to his representation of Nerazzurri defender Danilo D’Ambrosio.
Rather, Inter are remaining under the radar and will wait for a signal from Insigne or Napoli to suggest that a deal could be on the cards, rather than push for a deal, and they currently remain the only Italian team to have shown a clear interest.
Whilst the latest meetings between Pisacane and Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis did not yield any progress, and there remains a €1.5 million difference between Insigne’s demands and Napoli’s offer, it is thought to be too early to suggest a departure is certain next summer.
