Napoli forward ‘honoured’ to be on Arsenal wish list

Napoli and Italy playmaker Lorenzo Insigne is honoured to be linked with a move to Arsenal this summer, as reported by London24.

Insigne will be desperate to start for Italy against England next week in their opening World Cup clash and show the Gunners just what he has to offer.

The 23-year-old has become a key man in Naples after a summer of transition last summer and is happy to stay with the Serie A side.

Insigne’s agent though admits Arsene Wenger’s interest is a real honour and something they cannot ignore.

“We take into account the praising reports that Wenger has given about the player,” Insigne’s agent Antonio Ottaiano said to

“We are honoured that a club like Arsenal could have Lorenzo on their wish list.

“However, from here to take it to the next level, that is a possible transfer, there is a huge mountain in between named Napoli.

“The (Naples) club consider him without a shadow of a doubt as one of their cardinal players for their ambitious project.

“Hence, as of today, I don’t see that there can be any further developments unless Arsenal speak to Napoli directly and Napoli change their view on Lorenzo’s role here.”
