Liverpool Monitor Serie A Star as Contract Talks Stall

By Joel Turner IN General,Serie A,Transfers - 19:55 Mar 2nd 2017

It’s been a difficult start to 2017 for Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, and with his side out of contention for any major trophy thoughts are turning to the rebuilding process the team must undertake.

It was well-reported that Klopp had considerable funds to spend during the recent winter transfer window, but considers it to be a difficult time to sign players and has decided to wait until the end of the season.

One player who could bring much-needed star power and attacking threat to Anfield is Lorenzo Insigne,  with the Napoli midfielder currently stalling over a new deal at the club.

Now in his fifth season for the Serie A side, the 25-year-old had his best campaign so far in 2015/16 with 12 goals and 10 assists in the domestic league.

This season the Italian’s stats stack up very favourably against Liverpool’s star attacked Phillipe Coutinho. Two more goals and one more assist than the Brazillian are the headline stats that really count.

Admittedly Coutinho has had a spell on the sidelines through injury and therefore played six fewer domestic games than Insigne.

If Insigne is made available or pushes for a move, competition for his signature is likely to be fierce and Liverpool will have to pay a lot of money to secure his services.
