Everton are showing interest in Napoli forward Insigne

Everton have reportedly joined the race to sign Napoli captain Lorenzo Insigne as per the report in Italian outlet Il Mattino

The 30-year-old has been an integral part of the Blues system since making his debut almost a decade ago. The winger made 397 in all competitions over the past decade, scoring 109 goals. The Italy international was part of the recently concluded European Championship where he helped Gli Azzurri to triumph the championship. 

According to the report in the Italian outlet the current Everton and former Napoli manager, Rafael Benítez have shown interest in Lorenzo Insigne. Apart from the Toffees, Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan and Zenith Saint Petersburg are also in the race to sign the Italian little magician. 

Everton boss is keen on finalizing a deal for the 30-year-old who is valued at around £25 million by Napoli. Inter are also looking to bolster their attacking options and eyeing for the Italian international, following the departure of Romelu Lukaku. 

Can Everton sign Insigne this summer? 

Signing first-team players from Napoli has always been hard due to the club owner Aurelius De Laurentiis’ rock hard negotiation policy. De Laurentiis never likes to sell their star for cheap and snatching away the Italian club’s captain will be extremely difficult for the Premier League club. 

On the other hand, the physicality of Insigne could be problematic to cope with the high-intensity nature of the Premier League if he is to sign for Everton. The winger is only 163 cm tall and having spent all of his time in Italy it will be a daunting task for him to deliver in English football as he has already crossed the 30-year-old mark.
