Premier League giants Arsenal are said to be monitoring the situation of Napoli contract rebel Lorenzo Insigne.

The Italy international is currently in a contract standoff with the Serie A outfit following their reluctance to match his £75,000 weekly demands.

Insigne has adapted well to his winger-cum-striker role at Naples in recent seasons, and his versatility is something which the Gunners would favour in their squad ahead of the next campaign.

Apart from the Gunners, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool are also keeping tabs on the Italian frontman, who is valued at around £40m.

The 25-year-old is due to hold fresh contract talks in the coming weeks, and the meeting is likely to decide whether he will still remain in the Serie A beyond the summer.

Insigne has amassed nearly 200 appearances for Napoli since his breakthrough spell during the 2012-13 season.
