Lorenzo Insigne Napoli

Manchester United need to improve on all fronts next season and they must invest in key areas in the summer transfer window.

As far as the attack is concerned, according to reports (La Gazzetta Dello Sport), super agent Mino Raiola is in contact with Man Utd over a €100million (£85million) deal for Napoli attacker Lorenzo Insigne.

The Italian international is one of the best playmakers in the Serie A and he has been in top form this season.

Transfer: Man United make first contact to sign £86million versatile star

So far, in 34 appearances in all competitions, the 27-year-old winger has directly contributed in no fewer than 20 goals (13 goals and 7 assists).

Insigne is naturally a left winger but this season, Ancelotti has mainly utilized him as a secondary striker. The Azzurri attacker can effectively operate the ball with both feet and has the ability to take quality free kicks as well.

At Old Trafford, Anthony Martial is our first choice left winger at the moment and we have Alexis Sanchez as the backup option.

The Chilean international has proved to be a flop and he must be sold, therefore, the position must be strengthened and Insigne would be a top signing.

As per La Gazzetta Dello Sport, the playmaker has been jeered by Napoli fans and he has made his frustration clear. So, it will not be shocking to see him leave Naples in the summer.

As per TMW via RMC Sport, the likes of Liverpool and PSG are also interested in Insigne, hence, United should act swiftly if they want to hire his services.
