Lorenzo Insigne was in tears on the Napoli bench this week and his entourage is reportedly pushing him towards Liverpool.
The homegrown forward is negotiating a contract renewal, but so far the club has baulked at his wage demands.
Another problem, which is common at Napoli, is the issue of image rights.
According to Rai Sport, Insigne’s agent is ready to begin intensive talks with Liverpool, as Jurgen Klopp has long been an admirer.
Arsenal and Cesare Prandelli’s Valencia have also been linked with a swoop for the Italy international.
Insigne was in tears on the bench during a 3-2 Champions League home defeat to Besiktas on Wednesday, as he was jeered by the fans for missing a penalty.
