Insigne back ahead of schedule?

Napoli are optimistic they could have Lorenzo Insigne back for the game against Roma and fit to start with Arsenal.

The captain was ruled out for three weeks with a muscular injury during the warm-up of their Europa League trip to RB Salzburg last Thursday.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Insigne is responding well to treatment and could be ready for the Serie A showdown with Roma on March 31.

There are another two games after that, with Empoli and Genoa, before the first leg of the Europa League quarter-final at Arsenal on April 11.

This would allow Insigne to get some time on the field to regain match fitness.
