Tottenham transfer boost with Napoli star Lorenzo Insigne ‘available for just £20m if he doesn’t renew contract’August 11, 2021
NAPOLI are prepared to sell Tottenham target Lorenzo Insigne "immediately" for just £20million if he fails to agree a new contract.
Italy's Euro 2020 hero has also been linked with Barcelona as he pursues a pay rise.
And Italian newspaper 'Gazzetta dello Sport' suggest Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis is losing patience over the winger, 30.
It's claimed skipper Insigne wants around £5m-a-year wages, with his Serie A club currently offering closer to £3m.
The Naples-born star would expect a huge hike if he left for a major European club.
And with just a year left on his current contract, Napoli are increasingly willing to sell Insigne now rather than lose him for nothing next summer.
The home-grown hero has racked up more than 300 Italian top-flight appearances in 11 years for the top-flight side.
And having picked up two Italian Cup successes, he was a mainstay as they finished fifth last term.

It's thought Spurs and Barca have had contact with his agent in the current transfer window.
Meanwhile, Tottenham and Arsenal are reportedly chasing Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Denis Zakaria.
The £17m-rated Switzerland ace is also said to be on the radar of Everton, Roma and Napoli.
