Report: Liverpool want attacker in Euro 2020 semi-final tonight, Klopp's called him 'wonderful'
Liverpool want to sign Lorenzo Insigne from Napoli, Area Napoli have reported.
The Italian international is due to play in the Euro 2020 semi-final later tonight against Spain and his performances at the tournament may have led to Liverpool increasing their interest.
The rapid right winger has been one of the stars of the competition, where he has notched two goals in four games.
Liverpool are now cited as one of the teams keen to land him by Fabio Santini, who goes as far as described their interest as ‘strong’.
Perfect fit… almost
If Liverpool are to land Insigne then he could be an ideal fit to their attack.
His pace and directness makes him appeal perfect for Jurgen Klopp’s system.
However, he is now 30, which means he is around the same age as Liverpool’s current front three.
Klopp actually is a known admirer of Insigne, having labelled him as ‘wonderful’ before on Liverpool’s official website.
But it remains to be seen whether FSG would finance a transfer which, at the moment, appears fairly unlikely due to his advancing years.
