Insigne will play in Serie A

Napoli will talk to the agent of Lorenzo Insigne after the Coppa Italia Final to discuss his next move once his Pescara loan expires.

The Italian Under-21 international has made a real impact in Serie B this season and there is the suggestion that he could possibly replace Ezequiel Lavezzi at the San Paolo.

“He’s done really well to score 18 goals in Serie B,” representative Antonio Ottaiano told Radio Kiss Kiss on Wednesday.

“A replacement for Lavezzi? It all depends on how the club organise their attacking options. We’ll certainly meet with sporting director Riccardo Bigon after Sunday’s Cup Final against Juventus.

“All that is for certain at the moment is that Lorenzo will play in Serie A next season – at Napoli or somewhere else.”

If a San Paolo return is ruled out, the agent added that he’d like Insigne to continue playing for Zeman given their spell together at Foggia in the past too.

“The best solution would be for him to stay with the Czech Coach in the top flight. Two years ago, Bigon designed the path for Insigne which would gradually take Lorenzo back to Napoli.”

Zeman could stay at Pescara if they are promoted this season, while he’s also been linked with the Fiorentina job.
