Liverpool could reportedly be priced out of a winter move for Lorenzo Insigne with Napoli reluctant to accept anything less than £80m for their forward.

The Reds have been widely fancied to make a January approach for the Italy international with Klopp keen on bolstering the club's attack front further for a potential title challenge.

However, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, the Reds may have to pay a significant sum for the attacker with Napoli under no pressure to sell the 27-year-old.

At present, the Naples outfit are said to demand at least £80m for their prized asset and they are expected to stick with the valuation for the forthcoming transfer window.

Insigne, who has also attracted interest from Paris Saint-Germain, has contributed 60 goals in 272 appearances for Napoli across all competitions.

Out of those, eight have come this season including a late Champions League winner in the 1-0 win over Liverpool at the beginning of the month.
