MN: The truth regarding links with Napoli’s Insigne and the priorities for the summer market

By Oliver Fisher -

Rumours persist linking AC Milan with a move for Lorenzo Insigne but it appears the priorities will be elsewhere this summer, a report claims.

It all started with a visit to Casa Milan by the player’s entourage, at first described as a courtesy visit. However, it appears it was more than that, as the Napoli star is indeed considering his options ahead of the 2021-22 season Di Marzio and (via TuttoNapoli) confirmed last night that Milan are interested.

Despite this, MilanNews writes that while Insigne could represent a market opportunity for many different clubs, Milan should not be counted as one of them as the Rossoneri are more than covered on the left flank.

At the moment there are Ante Rebic, Rafael Leao and Jens Petter Hauge who can all play on the left flank in the 4-2-3-1 – without forgetting Alexis Saelemaekers can play there too if needed. Milan would be forced to sell one of Rebic or Leao to get Insigne, both of whom are younger than the Neapolitan.

Strengthening the left lane is not a priority, but rather signing a new striker will indeed be a more pressing matter as the future of Mandzukic appears to be away from Milan. The right wing should also be an area where the management look to take a ‘qualitative leap’ in quality.
