Premier League duo, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, are both set to be dealt transfer blows with the news that Napoli striker, Lorenzo Insigne, will be signing a new deal at the club until 2019.

The Italian international was being scouted and monitored over the Summer by the North London duo, with both of them using the World Cup to judge whether the striker can perform on the biggest occasions.

Despite neither side making formal moves over the Summer transfer window, it's believed that the two still remained interested and would renew their interest in January or even next year.

However, since then, Arsenal have signed Danny Welbeck and are still looking at Edinson Cavani, and Tottenham seem happy with the three strikers they currently have; Emmanuel Adebayor, Roberto Soldado and Harry Kane.


The 23-year-old was open to a move away from Napoli over the Summer, according to his agent, after falling behind Gonzalo Higuain in the pecking order, but the striker who netted just eight times last season, failed to get a move away from the Stadio San Paolo.

According to numerous reports, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, was ready to judge the striker during the World Cup, and if he was impressed, he would have tabled a £17million offer for the Italian, but with the nation only featuring in three games before being eliminated, The Gunners boss felt best not to make a move for the striker.

Missing Out

After failing to make a bid for the Italian, it now looks like both clubs will miss out on Insigne all together as according to reports in Italy, he has agreed a new deal with Napoli, which will see him stay at the club until 2019 at least.

It's believed the club and the player have an agreement in place which will see the 23-year-old commit his future, which will be finalised once the president returns from his trip to America.

The contract is all in place and ready to be signed.
