His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Atletico Madrid.

The Atletico Madrid manager has kept an eye on Lorenzo Insigne for the last 12 months and he is impressed with the forward’s performances.

Lorenzo Insigne would provide a good variety to Atletico Madrid’s attack.

According to Football Italia, “Lorenzo Insigne hinted he would leave Napoli for “an offer I can’t refuse,” but it’s reported the only proposal has come in from Atletico Madrid. The captain’s comments in the Corriere dello Sport interview on Saturday raised quite a few eyebrows and got reporters digging for clues. However, Spanish newspaper As and Italian paper Il Mattino claim the only real contenders for Insigne are Atletico Madrid, who would offer in the region of €50-60m. This is a long way off the asking price of €100m, although agent Mino Raiola is hoping to reduce that to €80m. Liverpool and Arsenal were linked, but do not appear to be preparing a bid anywhere near that price-tag.”

It would take a huge offer from Atletico Madrid to prise the 27-year-old forward from Napoli.

Signing the 27-year-old in the summer transfer window would be a masterstroke from Diego Simeone.

Will Insigne be a Atletico Madrid player soon? Only time will tell.
