Agent reveals that 24-year old star is flattered by Arsenal interest


The agent of Lorenzo Insigne has revealed that the Italian international is ‘gratified’ by the interest shown in him by Premier League giants Arsenal

Arsenal managed to hold on to top spot in the Premier League table with a hard fought 1-0 victory over Newcastle United at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday and many feel that it is a positive sign that the Gunners were able to grind out a victory without playing particularly well.

With every single match proving to be a challenge though, it is expected that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will look to strengthen his squad during the January transfer window in order to boost their title chances and signing a new striker ranks high on the agenda for the Gunners.

Recently, it had been claimed that Arsenal were interested in making a swoop for Napoli star Lorenzo Insigne this winter. Now agent, Antonio Ottaiano, has gone on to speak regarding the links by revealing that while Insigne is happy to stay put at Napoli, he has been left flattered by the interest from the Premier League giants.

Ottaiano told Radio Kiss Kiss, “PSG and Arsenal are clubs at the top of the world and their interest is certainly gratifying, but right now Lorenzo is only thinking about Napoli.

“A great season is also key to reaching his other aim for this year: securing a place for the next European Championship with Italy.”
