Liverpool received information for £132m-rated striker ahead of possible move

Liverpool have enquired about the chance of signing Lorenzo Insigne, whose contract is approaching its end and Jurgen Klopp might be considering he can get the forward on the cheap.

The Italy international is looking for a massive pay rise, and that could prove to be a big stumbling block in negotiations.

Lorenzo Insigne has been an outstanding attacking midfielder or false nine for Italy as well as his side.

The 27-year-old had many options to leave but chose to stay in Naples and play for his club.

McGarry  confirmede that there was a ‘big story’ in a very reputable Italian newspaper that Liverpool had made a bid for him but some publications claimed there was no official offer made from the Premier League giants in the January transfer window.

As it seems, it was simply an enquiry as to whether he might be available in the summer as clubs do once the January window closes, they start looking at a strategy for the summer.

The factor that will have the biggest influence on Lorenzo Insigne’s future is that he is up for contract renewal and he wants to be paid substantially more than he is being paid just now.

Liverpool will be happy to welcome the Italy international and could offer him a lucrative offer to bolster attacking options and provide competition for Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino at No.9 position.

Meanwhile the duo have been effective since playing in the altered tactics of Jurgen Klopp, especially the Brazil international, who returned his goal-scoring form.
