KEY POINTS

  • Lorenzo Insigne will have multiple offers this coming January
  • SSC Napoli will likely be forced to put Insigne on the selling block
  • Tottenham and Newcastle are in a tug-of-war for Insigne

With the January transfer window fast approaching, Tottenham is expected to go after some players in the market.

One name to watch is reportedly Lorenzo Insigne, someone that Antonio Conte is allegedly a big fan of.

According to Calciomercato, the SSC Napoli winger is on the wish list of the Spurs and a potential offer could be dangled next month.

The 30-year-old will be out of contract next summer, and the Italian is allegedly stalling over a new deal.

He is currently making around £90,000 ($120,000) a week, and failing to agree on a new deal could force the Serie A side to explore selling Insigne.

However, getting the Insigne will not be easy for Tottenham.

Other teams are keeping watch aside from the Spurs. Inter Milan and Newcastle United are also considering Insigne, and it may all likely boil down to the offer.

Insigne was hardly impressed at the fresh deal offer by Napoli, particularly because it called for him to agree to lower pay.

The rest of his salary will be made up of bonuses, and he prefers to get a better offer from other teams.

With SSC Napoli, Insigne scored 114 goals and claimed 91 assists. He has notably spent time on loan, having played for several teams such as Foggia, Cavese and Pescara.

Insigne has been with Napoli since 2007 and is a product of the team’s youth academy.

Furthermore, he has made 413 appearances for Gli Azzurri and is a notable stalwart of the Italian club.

With Conte and Fabio Paratici reportedly big fans of the Italian winger, improving the wage offer to Insigne could seal the deal.
