Liverpool transfer news: £44m forward remains high on Klopp’s wishlist

Liverpool could reportedly revisit their interest in Napoli forward Lorenzo Insigne as he has yet to agree on new terms with the Serie A giants.

The 25-year-old has faced his fair share of criticism in Naples, as expectations are high given that he is a native of the city and will undoubtedly be eager himself to lead the club to silverware.

With nine goals and six assists so far this season, he continues to play an important role in their pursuit of a top three finish in Serie A, while they also remain in the hunt for the Champions League, albeit Maurizio Sarri’s side must overturn a 3-1 deficit against Real Madrid.

According to Calciomercato though, there are doubts over his future in Italy as he has yet to agree on a new contract, which in turn could give Liverpool the opening that they seek to make a move for him.

AC Milan are also interested in the Italian international, as per the report, as they look to take advantage of the fact that Insigne’s current deal expires in 2019, and negotiations over a new deal have been put on hold until the end of March with his salary demands being touted as the biggest issue.

As reported by The Sun last year, Liverpool were linked with a £44m swoop for the talented winger, which in itself could be a problem as that’s a significant fee for Klopp to shell out and he may well be forced to consider other options if those demands are reduced.

Nevertheless, it appears as though the Reds are ready to reignite their interest in Insigne if reports are to be believed, and it remains to be seen whether or not they appeal to him more than signing a renewal with his boyhood club.
