Insigne wage row with Napoli

Lorenzo Insigne’s position at Napoli is increasingly tense, as his wage demands are €2m per year off what is being proposed.

The striker is under contract until June 2019 and currently negotiating an extension.

According to multiple reports, the player’s entourage wants €4.5m per year.

That is a huge leap from the current €1.8m per season salary.

More importantly, it is also massive compared to the wages on offer: €2.5m per year.

Insigne’s agent has complained in public before, implying that he could consider a move abroad.

Napoli are also not averse to letting him go, as they have Dries Mertens eager for more playing time in his role.

Arsenal are known to be interested in Italy international wide forward Insigne, who is a native Neapolitan.
