Everton interested in Napoli’s Insigne

Insigne - NapoliEverton are reportedly gaining interest in Napoli forward Lorenzo Insigne ahead of this summer’s transfer window.

The 22-year-old Naples native hasn’t had the best of luck in front of goal for the Partenopei this season, scoring just two goals in his 34 Serie A appearances this term thus far, and has been linked with a possible move away from his home town club at the end of the current campaign, with Serie A teams including Fiorentina supposedly interested in securing his services.

According to Il Mattino, the Italian international has also earned the attention of teams outside of Italy, as Premier League side Everton are also apparently keen on signing him this summer, though the extent of their reported interest in the forward is yet to be known.

Despite his lack of goals, Insigne has tallied five assists and has become more useful in creating chances for his Napoli team-mates this season, which has helped him maintain the confidence of coach Rafa Benitez.
