Liverpool are keeping a close eye on Lorenzo Insigne’s contract situation at Napoli, with the creative star’s agent pushing to land a ‘dream’ move to Anfield for his client, according to The Daily Star.
The Reds have started the new season at a blistering pace, with Jurgen Klopp’s men scoring a division-high 20 goals in their first nine Premier League games.

Insigne is stalling on a new deal with the Serie A side and is believed to be asking for a wage in the region of £100,000 per week.
With the Naples-based outfit reluctant to pay the 25-year-old’s demands, talk in the press that the Italy international could be set for a transfer has been starting to build over recent weeks.
It is believed that Insigne wants to move to Merseyside and work with Klopp, however Napoli are digging their heels in and want a fee of more than £40 million for the winger.
Should Liverpool add another attacking star like Insigne to their squad, it would cast even more doubts over Daniel Sturridge’s future at Anfield.
