Arsenal completing €100m deal for this world-class Italian would be a huge statement of intent from Emery

Arsenal opinion: Gunners must go all out for Lorenzo Insigne

According to a report from Italian publication Calciomercato, Arsenal are looking at the possibility of signing Napoli’s Lorenzo Insigne in the summer. The report reveals that the Gunners are strongly interested in Insigne and can take the winger away from Carlo Ancelotti’s side for €100million in the summer.

Arsenal’s only concern in the attack this season has been in the wide areas. Unai Emery has been forced to use the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Mesut Ozil, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi out wide and although they have done a fair job there, Arsenal need to bring in a natural winger in the summer.

Arsenal were linked with the likes of Yannick Carrasco, Ivan Perisic, and Gelson Martins among others in the January transfer window but none of the moves materialised.

However, Arsenal should go in hard for the signature of Lorenzo Insigne and the Italian would take Arsenal’s offensive prowess to the next level.

The 27-year-old has been an integral part of Napoli’s squad over the past few years and has been in decent form this campaign too. Insigne has scored 13 goals and has provided 7 assists so far in all competitions and is among the best attackers in world football.

A highly versatile midfielder, Insigne can play anywhere across the front three and also as a number 10. The Italian’s ability to play on either wing will be a massive asset to the Gunners squad and his technical quality on the ball will be a huge fit in the Premier League.

Insigne also has an incredible eye for goal and is an intelligent finisher. Despite possessing the ability to use his power to get the ball past the goalkeeper, Insigne is smart with his shots and is often seen using placement and finesse to score his goal.

Insigne’s biggest asset is his pace and dribbling skills. The Italian, standing at 5ft 4in tall, uses his low centre of gravity to get away from defenders and his pace and skill on the ball make him a difficult customer to stop when through on goal.

Insigne is also an astute set-piece taker and has the ability to score direct freekicks without much difficulty. Him, along with Granit Xhaka’s prowess over the dead ball, will make Arsenal very dangerous in set-pieces and Unai Emery should go for Insigne in the summer.

Conclusion

Lorenzo Insigne would be an extraordinary addition to Arsenal’s squad and they should not think twice about making a move for him in the summer.

The Napoli man will bring in an incredible amount of experience too, having played over 400 senior games in his career so far. All in all, Insigne is arguably the best winger Arsenal could get in the summer and despite his hefty price tag, he would be worth every penny.
