Napoli star Insigne responds to Lazio rumours amid Barca and Atletico links

Lorenzo Insigne dismissed speculation linking him with a move to Serie A rivals Lazio amid doubts over his Napoli future. Insigne is entering the final year of his contract and the captain is yet to re-sign with boyhood club Napoli, where he emerged from the youth team in 2010.

Several clubs linked to Insigne

The Italy star has been linked with LaLiga clubs Barcelona and Atlético Madrid, while Liverpool and AC Milan have previously emerged as possible destinations. Insigne was asked about his future, with reports claiming Italy team-mate Ciro Immobile is trying to lure the 30-year-old to Lazio.

"This rumour came out that Immobile is acting as sporting director to bring me to Lazio, but it's not true," Insigne said as Italy prepare for Saturday's Euro 2020 Last 16 clash with Austria. "He didn't tell me anything about it. We're friends, we're going on vacation together, but we haven't talked about that. I am only thinking of playing the European Championship, afterwards there is time to talk to the club. As for my career, I have no regrets. What I always dreamed of was playing for Napoli and wearing the armband. My two dreams have come true and therefore I am not happy, but overjoyed."
