Napoli forward Lorenzo Insigne is on Liverpool’s list of transfer targets as a replacement for Philippe Coutinho.
Coutinho’ move to Barcelona continues to dominate the headlines, with Barcelona set to return with a bid in excess of £100m next week as they look to secure the services of the wantaway Brazilian. Speaking yesterday after Liverpool’s opening day draw at Watford, Jurgen Klopp suggested that it was now out of his control if the player stays or not, despite previously insisting that he wasn’t for sale.
Should Liverpool’s owners decide to cash in on the unhappy South American, the Sunday People claimed that Lorenzo Insigne tops Liverpool’s list of targets to replace him.
The 26-year-old is valued at around £60million and has long been admired by Klopp, having scored 20 goals from midfield last season.
Officially, Napoli insist that Insigne is not for sale, but a big money bid could be enough to tempt the Italians into allowing their star player leave for the Premier League, where he would most likely be able to improve on his own personal terms.
Liverpool have also been linked with Brazilian starlet, Luan, who plays for Gremio.
