He has been having an awesome season, he has scored 14 goals in the Serie A, a total of 16 in all competitions, he has 10 assists to his name as well in a total of 43 games since last August, and despite attracting interest from big English -and not only- clubs, he just signed a contract extension at Napoli.

Italian striker Lorenzo Insigne put on his shiniest smile as he sat next to Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis in a Press conference, a specially organized event so that the 25-year-old would sign his new contract in front of the media.
I am very happy because Lorenzo is a symbol of Napoli, because it takes time to build things that will then last over time
De Laurentiis said, obviously satisfied and maybe relieved as well that he convinced one of his team’s most important players to remain at the club, despite having offers from big teams from abroad as well.
Arsenal and Liverpool were, according to various reports, two of the teams interested in signing Insigne, who, as he said, took the decision to sign his new contract that will keep him at Napoli until 2022, listening to his heart.
