Insigne expects new Napoli deal

Lorenzo Insigne’s agent expects a Napoli contract renewal in August, but “it looks as if he’ll be on the bench” for Italy at Euro 2016.

The home-grown talent is the only native Neapolitan in the first team and as such earned his status as fan favourite.

“Napoli are working well on the market and the names I’m hearing are the right ones to reinforce the squad,” agent Franco Della Monica told Radio Marte.

“I think President Aurelio De Laurentiis is eager to give Lorenzo this recognition, so for August we could have the cherry on the cake that is a contract renewal.”

Insigne is in the Italy squad going to Euro 2016, but Antonio Conte is not focusing on his qualities.

“Insigne would form a very interesting partnership with Simone Zaza, even if in this phase it looks as if he’ll be on the bench.

“That doesn’t worry Lorenzo, who will ensure he is ready when called upon.”
