Paper talk: Napoli star snubs Barcelona, Spurs’ €30m bid revealed

23 August at 11:45

Napoli star Lorenzo Insigne is being monitored by Barcelona but the talented Italian winger is not considering a move to the Camp Nou. Scorer of one of Napoli’s two goals against Nice yesterday night, Insigne revealed that he is not considering a move to Barcelona where a replacement of Neymar is desperately needed.

“It would be everyone’s dream to play for Barcelona”, Insigne told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“However, I’ve always wanted to play for Napoli and I want to do the best for my club. We are also a great team and we have now the right mentality to do well this season. We’ve all decided to stay here to achieve something important. Now we must focus on Atalanta as we struggled against them last season.”

Insigne has recently signed a new contract with the Serie A giants and his current agreement in South Italy expires in 2022.

Meantime, the Keita saga continues with speculations over a possible move to Juventus, AC Milan and Napoli that keep going.

The Senegalese striker has also attracted the interest of West Ham and Tottenham and according to Il Corriere dello Sport, the Spurs will launch an opening bid in the coming hours. The Italian paper claims Tottenham will offer € 30 million to sign the product of Barcelona academy.

Keita has already snubbed a move to West Ham, AC Milan and Napoli whilst Juventus have only offered € 15 million to sign him. Lazio are not going to sell Keita for less than € 30 million and the offer of the Premier League giants is likely to be accepted by the Serie A side.

The player is reported to prefer a move in Serie A but if he had a chance to move to London and play the Champions League, he could consider a move away from Italy. Lazio are now only waiting for the Spurs’ official proposal.
