Insigne likely to stay

Lorenzo Insigne is likely to stay with Napoli for next season, and will be handed a new contract too, confirms his agent.

The youngster has impressed whilst out on loan in recent seasons, but has been recalled this summer and has already had a place in Napoli’s pre-season camp confirmed.

That looks likely to stretch into the season proper, suggests his representative, because the Partenopei look unlikely to replace Ezequiel Lavezzi, who was sold this week to Paris Saint-Germain.

Top 10 uncapped players

With Euro 2012 over, it is time to look to the future for Italy boss Cesare Prandelli. Antonio Labbate highlights 10 uncapped players who could enter the Giro Azzurro ahead of World Cup 2014.

Francesco Acerbi (Milan)

“Acerbi is ready for Milan and the Italian national side. Give him a few months and he’ll be included in the Azzurri set-up.” Those were the words of Chievo Verona boss Mimmo Di Carlo recently after the 23-year-old’s impressive second half of the season at the Bentegodi. The centre-back has completed his dream move to San Siro, but with just 17 top-flight games under his belt, he has much to prove to Prandelli and Italian football in general.
