Former Arsenal target to demand exit, claims agent

Napoli star Lorenzo Insigne will ask to leave the Italian club, reports ESPNFC.

Those are the words of his agent, Fabio Andreotti, who has suggested that Napoli haven’t offered a financially worthy contract for the Italian. After recent meetings with the club, Andreotti has come out claiming that whilst Napoli don’t want to sell, he and the 25-year-old will be looking for better offers elsewhere:

“Napoli don’t want to let him go, but the contract they’re offering does not satisfy us, we have better offers.” said Andreotti.

“In the past, Lorenzo thought only about the good of Napoli, but if there isn’t an adequate project then we must ask them for permission to take our leave.”

Back in January, one of Insigne’s other representatives, Antonio Ottaiano, told the Mirror that Arsenal were interested in signing the Italian. The forward went on to finish last season with 12 Serie A goals, his first double-figures return in the league for Napoli.

The Gunners have been linked with a new striker this year, after missing out on both Gonzalo Higuain and Jamie Vardy. Higuain has joined Juventus, whilst Vardy signed a new deal to stay at Leicester City.
