Liverpool have reportedly made a €70m offer for Napoli forward Lorenzo Insigne.
The 27-year-old has continued to play an influential role for the Partenopei this season, scoring 11 goals and providing six assists in 27 appearances.
However, Liverpool have made a first attempt to prise him away from Naples with a €70m offer, according to Repubblica.
It’s added though that it falls significantly short of a bid that would force Aurelio De Laurentiis to consider an exit, with the report suggesting that he will reject offers up to €150m for the Napoli captain.
Napoli closed the gap to Serie A leaders Juventus to nine points this past weekend, with Insigne scoring in their 3-0 win over Sampdoria.
