Chelsea ‘queuing for Lorenzo Insigne’ as Italian forward nears end of contract with Napoli… as Thomas Tuchel tries to sack Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech
- Chelsea want to bring in Napoli forward Lorenzo Insigne, according to a report
- Insignia sparkled in Italy’s run to win the European Championship this summer
- His contract with Napoli has expired and will be available for free in June
- Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech are likely to leave Chelsea next summer
Chelsea look to Napoli captain Lorenzo Insigne.
Insigne, who played in Italy this summer to win the European Championship, has spent most of his career with the boys’ club Napoli, leaving only a few times on loan at the start of his football journey.
But the attacker has let his contract with the club expire and will be available for free from June next year unless he signs a new contract.
Napoli striker Lorenzo Insigne has caught Chelsea’s attention, according to a report
Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel interested in donning Insignia, according to Fichajes.com
And Chelsea want to take advantage of the situation, according to Fichajes.com.
Coach Thomas Tuchel has worked wonders with the club since he succeeded Frank Lampard last January, but despite a busy summer landing Romelu Lukaku, he is still not completely satisfied with his squad.
Failed striker Timo Werner is on the cusp of leaving, while Hakim Ziyech has also struggled to settle in since he left Ajax and is ready to be moved.
The double departure would make room for Insigne, who have enabled Napoli’s explosive start to the Serie A season.
Hakim Ziyech struggled at Chelsea and could leave the club to make way for Insignia
Timo Werner has also failed to live up to expectations since joining and was also able to leave
Insigne has scored twice and provided three assists as Napoli have won all six of their first league games to top the Italian standings.
Tuchel faces his toughest stint since taking over Chelsea after successive 1-0 defeats to Manchester City and Juventus.
But his side has a chance to return to winning ways when they face winless Southampton on Saturday.
Lorenzo has played a key role in Napoli’s remarkable run of six consecutive Serie A wins this season
