Tottenham are lining up a £16m bid for Napoli forward Lorenzo Insignie according to Football Direct News.

The White Hart Lane side have seen new signings Erik Lamela and Roberto Soldado fail to come up with the goods so it’s no surprise that chairman Daniel Levy would be looking to bring in further options this summer though one imagines he will look to offload one of the pair before making a move for new additions.

22 year old Italian international Insignie has had a good season culminating in a two goal salvo in Napoli’s recent Coppa Italia final win and is sure to be part of Cesare Prandelli’s 2014 World Cup finals squad and is likely to be a player Rafa Benitez wouldn’t want to lose.

The pint sized attacker is most effectively used in a wide role and could therefore be seen as a player to provide the likes of Emmanuel Adebayor and Harry Kane with ammunition though is also able to play in a central striking role is necessary.
