Napoli have no intention of selling Lorenzo Insigne to Chelsea this summer, according to reports in Italy.

Radio Kiss Kiss – as quoted by Football Italia – is reporting that the Serie A side have no plans to cash in on their Italy international.

The same article states that Insigne wants to see out the rest of his career at his hometown club despite interest from the Premier League champions.

The Sun reported on Monday that Chelsea manager Antonio Conte had earmarked Insigne as a potential replacement for Hazard.

However, the latest reports in Italy seem to suggest that a move to England for Insigne is not on the cards.

The Belgium international has been heavily linked with a move to La Liga giants Real Madrid in the summer transfer window.

However, Hazard broke his ankle during international duty with the Belgium squad which could scupper any potential move this summer.

Chelsea won the Premier League title in their first season under the management of Antonio Conte.
