Insigne open to Napoli stay

Napoli forward Lorenzo Insigne has denied reports that he is set to leave the Serie A side at the end of the season and discussed his long-term future with the club.

Internazionale have been strongly linked with a move for the Italy international but the academy graduate says he is firmly committed to remaining at the Stadio San Paolo, who he believes is on par with Europe's elite clubs.

"I think that Napoli is a great team and we saw why when we played almost on a par with Real Madrid," he told Football Italia.

"However, to win many trophies it takes not only the players but also a great ownership. I hope that Napoli will grow as a club, I'm good at Napoli and I’m giving the best for this shirt. 

"President De Laurentiis knows that my priority is, however, for now, everything has come to a stop. 

"I'm just thinking about playing, the other things my agent deals with. It takes two to make a marriage, it's not just one sided. 

"I've always been available for Napoli, the President knows how it is. I'll wait and then we’ll see."

Insigne has scored 13 goals and registered 10 assists in 39 games across all competitions this season.
