Antonio Ottaniano, speaking to Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli [as per Le 10 Sport], has confirmed that the English and French capital clubs are both monitoring the diminutive attacker, but has insisted that his client remains focused on life at Naples.

“We enjoy the interest from PSG and Arsenal,” Antonio Ottaiano admitted, speaking to Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli,” the player representative began.

“We’re talking about two clubs at the top of world football, but Lorenzo is focused on Napoli and his personal and team objectives.

“He’s wearing the shirt he dreamed of wearing as a child, and he’ll give his all to bring great satisfaction to the fans.”

Italy international Insigne—who will be in contention to represent the Azzurri at the European Championships in France next summer—is currently enjoying a fine campaign in Serie A.

The versatile star—who can play on the wing or in a central role—has scored seven goals and contributed five assists in 17 matches to date.

He has been one of the stars in Maurizio Sarri’s exciting Naples outfit, and has been influential as the Partenopei have climbed to second in the Serie A table for the winter break, only one point behind leaders Inter Milan.
