Liverpool transfer: Reds supporters urge Edwards to 'work his magic'
Lorenzo Insigne has been linked with a move to Liverpool, according to Area Napoli, and supporters have been reacting on Twitter to the news.
The Serie A star is on the crest of a wave with Italy right now. He helped the team reach the final of Euro 2020 last night as they beat Spain on penalties.
He has scored twice at the summer competition and as a result, he’s attracting a fair bit of interest from potential suitors.
At 30, Insigne wouldn’t represent a long-term option for any club that buys him. He is, however, in possession of real quality and can turn the game at the drop of a hat.
Last season he was in blistering form. He scored 19 goals and claimed 11 assists, despite playing the majority of his football on the left wing.
Insigne has been a stalwart for Napoli and earns around £150,000-a-week. There are no indications at this stage that the club would be willing to sell him, however.
One situation to bear in mind, however, is that his contract expires next summer. As a result of that, a decent offer could tempt the Italians into a sale.
Liverpool fans desperate to see Insigne sign
Boss Jurgen Klopp is desperate to add some competition for his attacking ranks and Insigne would be a quality addition.
He can operate on either side or through the middle and would bring goals and assists in abundance to Anfield.
It certainly seems as though the Liverpool faithful are in agreement over his quality, with plenty wanting him to rock up at Anfield.
After a strong Euro 2020, Napoli will want to keep him, although his contract situation could make them powerless to prevent a departure.
Here is what the Liverpool faithful have been saying over on Twitter about the Insigne rumours.
