‘This Is Such A Bad Move’ ‘Would Get Absolutely Bullied’ Fans Debate Chelsea’s Interest In Signing 13-Goal Winger

Chelsea are one of three teams interested in signing Napoli winger Lorenzo Insigne, according to reports in the Italian media.

Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain are also said to be keeping tabs on the 27-year-old.

Insigne has worked with Maurizio Sarri before and could be lined up as a potential replacement for Eden Hazard if FIFA lift the transfer embargo on the club.

Some supporters on Twitter don’t believe the Italian international would be a good signing:

Insigne has scored 13 goals in all competitions for Napoli this season, but it must be said, he isn’t as influential as Hazard and is a very similar age.

The Italian did score 14 and provide 14 assists in Sarri’s last campaign in charge at the Partenopei so he is consistently getting good numbers but it’s clear he would be a step down from Hazard.

Perhaps the Blues would be better off investing in a younger player who could develop, much like the Belgian did at Stamford Bridge.
