Both Newcastle and West Ham have offered Lorenzo Insigne a contract worth just shy of £83,000-per-week, according to reports from Il Mattino.

The Napoli ace is regarded as one of the top attacking midfielders in Serie A and notched an impressive 12 goals and 10 assists last term as the Naples side finished runners-up to Juventus.

His performances also won him a slot in Italy’s EURO 2016 set-up, and it seems he’s attracted serious attention from England.

Indeed reports claim that both Newcastle and West Ham have been in contact with the player’s representatives, with both willing to pay him €5m (£4.3m)-a-year, which works out at just shy of £83,000-per-week.

Such a salary is a vast hike on his earnings at Napoli and is a real signal of intent from both clubs, especially Newcastle given their Championship status.

Insigne, 25, is able to play on either flank or as a withdrawn striker and has been praised for his agility and technique.
