Chelsea Linked With Signing Serie A Star Who Is Capable Of Dominating Europe

Chelsea are reportedly interested in signing Napoli winger Lorenzo Insigne next summer, according to Spanish outlet Fichajes. After a positive start to the new season, Chelsea have hit a minor roadblock following back to back defeats at the hands of Manchester City and Juventus. The major missing piece in those games was the absence of Mason Mount, who has become a vital part of Thomas Tuchel's playing style at Chelsea.

Chelsea are looking at a player who can play a similar role as Mount with Lorenzo Insigne being that player.

Insigne had a stellar 2020-21 season, guiding Italy to Euro 2020 glory against England at Wembley Stadium. The 30-year-old winger has entered the final year of the Napoli contract with an extension looking highly unlikely. This means that Lorenzo Insigne could be available on a free transfer come next summer.

Chelsea are looking at Insigne as a backup for someone like Mason Mount in the starting XI. At 30 years old, Insigne might not be a regular starter for any new side he joins next summer.
