Tottenham Hotspur are credited with an interest in Napoli star Lorenzo Insigne since the summer window.
The forward’s contract runs down at the end of this season and this, coupled with Antonio Conte’s past connection with the Italy international from their time in the national team setup, makes it no surprise for Spurs to get dragged into the mix again.
According to Calciomercato.it, the 30-year-old earns €5m per year and the new deal proposed by the Serie A side includes an annual salary of €3.5m plus an additional €1.5m in bonuses.
The player is looking around and there should be no big news before January.
As things stand, the road is ‘too long’ with the Naples club to retain Insigne and to do that, the club need to submit an improved renewal offer.
Inter have been credited with a serious interest, but there is no agreement between the two parties so far.
Furthermore, the Nerazzurri are not the only club interested in the attacker as the north London club are also in the picture.
It’s claimed Tottenham have ‘tested the ground’ to sign Insigne, whose future is ‘still open’ because he is ‘far away from reaching an agreement with Napoli over a new deal.
A delay from Napoli in offering an improved deal could result in Insigne leave as a free agent next summer.
Tottenham, who have ‘tested the ground’, could pounce on the opportunity to sign him for nothing, and with their Premier League money, getting him the wages he wants shouldn’t be an issue.
