Inter are still interested in Napoli captain Lorenzo Insigne, wanting to sign him early on next year through a free transfer.


According to today's edition of Tuttosport (via Sempre Inter), the Nerazzurri are still keen on signing Insigne, who is out of contract with Napoli next summer, and he is still considered a major target for Inter to complete their attack.


Talks over a possible contract extension with Napoli have stalled, with Insigne considering a move away from the club in order to have a change in scenery.


Inter were among the clubs seeking to take advantage of Insigne's situation at Napoli over the summer, and while they were targeting a move for him, they ended up opting for Lazio's Joaquin Correa instead.


However, they are still interested in him, and they are seriously looking at the option of bringing him in next summer once his contract is up.


Insigne is already off the mark for Napoli this season, scoring in the season opener against Venezia, with them winning both of their opening games in Serie A.


The 30-year-old produced incredible numbers last season, scoring 19 goals and providing seven assists in 35 Serie A games for Napoli, and he also went on to form an integral part of the Italy team that won UEFA Euro 2020, with him scoring twice, including a crucial goal in the 2-1 Quarter-Final win against Belgium.


If Insigne leaves, it would be a huge loss for Napoli, and he will surely thrive in an exciting Inter team led by Simone Inzaghi.
