Chelsea have joined Arsenal in the race to sign Napoli skipper Lorenzo Insigne, according to the reports from Italy.



The Italy international winger is set to depart from the Serie A giants at the end of the season when his deal expires as they cannot afford to offer him new improved terms.

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur have already been rumoured with a move for Insigne, who has been at Napoli since the age of 15 and has scored over 111 goals for them in 405 appearances while assisting 68 in the Italian top-tier.

According to Fichajes, the Blues and the Gunners are now the favourites to secure the services of the 30-year-old forward. The report suggests that Mason Mount’s recent absence has led Thomas Tuchel to go in search of another creative attacking option, while the Gunners are still lacking creativity at the offensive end.

The outlet adds that Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech could both leave Stamford Bridge to make room for Insigne when the transfer window will be re-opened in the summer, however, the Blues have to face stiff competition from their London rivals, Arsenal.
