Liverpool are reportedly showing ‘intense’ interest in Lorenzo Insigne

Liverpool are very interested in signing Napoli ace Lorenzo Insigne, according to a report from Area Napoli.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is on the lookout for attacking reinforcements at Anfield this summer.

Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane need more quality competition and cover.

They are all top-class players but complacency set in last season, with only Salah producing the numbers expected of him.

Diogo Jota was brought to Liverpool last season, but Klopp needs to do a lot more to guide his side back to the top of English football.

Area Napoli claim that there is intense competition for the 30-year-old between the Reds and Atletico Madrid.

The diminutive Italian is one of the very best attacking players in the game.

Insigne racked up an incredible 19 goals and seven assists in 35 Serie A games for Napoli last season.

He made an average of 1.9 successful dribbles per game during those outings and was fouled 1.1 times per match.

Insigne has racked up a very impressive 168 goals and 102 assists in 518 career games.

The Italian is out of contract in Naples next summer.

He could be available for around €25-30 million (£21-26 million) this summer, according to Gonfialarete.

That seems like decent value for Liverpool, although it must be said that it would also be a good deal for Napoli. They could lose him for nothing in 12 months.

Insigne would undoubtedly be a big hit at Anfield. Whether the Reds can beat off the competition from Atletico for his signature remains to be seen.
