Liverpool leading race to sign £60-rated explosive Italian forward

Liverpool are reportedly at the head of the queue for Napoli forward Lorenzo Insigne.

Insigne has been with Napoli since 2006, progressing through the youth set-up before making his first-team debut for the Italian giants in 2010.

The 27-year-old has scored 76 times in 302 appearances for Gli Azzurri, including 13 goals in all competitions during the 2018-19 campaign.

However, according to Corriere dello Sport, the forward’s relationship with Napoli has broken down and he will look for a move away from the club in this summer’s transfer window.

The same report claims that Liverpool are at the head of the queue for the Italian as Reds boss Jurgen Klopp looks to improve his attack ahead of the 2019-2020 season.

Insigne, who has also been linked with Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich and Inter Milan, will see his current deal in Naples expire in June 2022.

The Italian is valued at £60m by the Serie A giants.
