Premier League duo Arsenal and Liverpool could drop their interest in Lorenzo Insigne amid his desire to extend his stay at Napoli.

The Italy international had earlier distanced himself from a potential extension at Naples with the club's hierarchy reluctant to match his wage demands.

However, the Serie A outfit have since held fresh negotiations with the highly rated forward, who is now on course to ink a fresh five-year deal contract.

According to Il Mattino, the attacker will commit his long-term future to his hometown club despite both Arsenal and Liverpool willing to offer him a substantial wage rise.

Lorenzo, who is currently on a £35,000 weekly package, is expected to pen a double-your-money deal with Napoli - which is still less than what the English pair have put on offer.

The 25-year-old is a fan favourite among the Napoli faithful after having amassed 45 goals in over 200 games across all competitions for the Italian side.
