Lorenzo Insigne has not spoken to Arsenal about a possible move to The Emirates, according to the Italian’s agent.

The Napoli winger has been linked with the north London club on a regular basis over the past couple of months, with Gunners manager Arsene Wenger expected to improve his attacking options in the current transfer window.

Insigne, who has a contract with the Naples outfit until 2018, scored three goals and made six assists in 36 Serie A appearances last season, earning a call-up to Cesare Prandelli’s Italy squad for this summer’s World Cup.

The 23-year-old’s agent Fabio Andreotti believes Arsenal will have competition from several European clubs for Insigne’s signature – but added that he doubts Napoli will allow his client to leave.

“We have not been contacted by Arsenal for Lorenzo Insigne and Napoli has not notified us of this interest,” Andreotti told Italian radio station Radio Crc.

“Lorenzo is a target of several European sides so it wouldn’t surprise me if big clubs are interested in him. However, Napoli don’t want to put him in the market.”

Insigne has scored seven goals in 64 Serie A appearances in the past two seasons.
