Arsenal have been linked with weighing up a swoop for the Italy international, who impressed at Napoli last term and scored a brace in the Coppa Italia final to help the Azzurri claim the trophy.

Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis sought to make sure Arsenal understood that the player was valued at around €70m by the club, and the player’s agent, Fabio Andreotti has admitted that Arsene Wenger has yet to be in touch with regards to a deal.

“We have not been contacted by Arsenal for Lorenzo Insigne and Napoli have not told us about any interest”, he explained.

“Lorenzo is wanted by several European clubs and it does not surprise me to know that big clubs are interested in him.

“But Napoli have not put him on the market,” Andreotti concluded.

Insigne began his career with the Neapolitans but left to make a detour around the lower leagues before linking back up with the club to become a star at the San Paolo.
