Insigne has been one of Napoli’s most consistent performers over the last decade and the 30-year-old has also become a key part of the Italian national side under Roberto Mancini, playing a valued role in the Azzurri’s march to European Championship glory this summer.
Despite staying put at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium, the speculation over Insigne’s future has not slowed down, with reports backing Tottenham to snap him up as a free agent next summer.
Tuttosport have now revealed that Spurs and AC Milan are ‘following’ the Italy international’s situation at the Naples club ‘with discretion’.
Insigne is thought to be demanding a net salary of around €6m (£5.1m) per season, while the Serie A side’s proposal includes an annual wage of €4.5m (£3.8m).
The report adds that the experienced attacker is aware this will be the last big contract of his career and is thus looking for a better deal.
However, it is explained that Napoli owner, Aurelio De Laurentiis, is keen to find a solution and remains intent on holding on to Insigne.

I do not see how a 30-year-old Insigne would really improve our forward line. I do not believe the Napoli man’s game is suited to the demands of the Premier League and I fully expect him to see out his career in Italy.
