Liverpool fans have mixed views on Lorenzo Insigne speculation

According to La Repubblica, Liverpool recently offered €70m (around £61m) for Napoli attacker Lorenzo Insigne, but were knocked back by the Italian club.

Insigne has found the back of the net on 11 occasions in 27 appearances for Napoli during the 2018-19 campaign.

According to La Repubblica, the Merseyside outfit approached Napoli over a move for Insigne, with a £61m offer on the table.

However, it is understood that Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis will not consider selling the Italian for anything under €150m (around £131m).

That is an awful lot of money and it would be a surprise to see the Reds return with an offer of anywhere near the price that is being quoted.

Liverpool fans have been on social media offering their views on the situation and it would be fair to say that a number are not in agreement.

Indeed, whilst some would take Insigne for that price, others feel that it is too much. And there are also those who are refusing to even believe the transfer report.
