The 25-year-old has seen his name linked with a number of top European sides, including the Gunners’ Premier League rivals Liverpool, following an impressive campaign.

Recent reports suggested that talks between the Reds and Insignehas already begun, but respected Italian journalist Nicolo Schira claims that Arsenal have now joined the race after sending scouts to watch him score in Sunday’s 3-1 win over Chievo.

It is thought that Arsenal have made the Italy international, under contract with Napoli until 2019, their top target and will attempt to begin negotiations prior to the summer.

Insigne, who has spent his eight-year playing career in Italian football, now has eight league goals for the campaign and has also laid on a further eight for his teammates.
