Insigne this season has scored 11-goals in 27 games for Napoli.

The versatile forward has found back of the net 74 times and provided 69 assists in 291 games for his Italian team since stepping into the first-team picture.

Meanwhile, Liverpool and Manchester United long-term target Steven Bergwijn is keen to depart PSV this summer in a bid to make a step up in his career.

According to Voetbal International, as cited on Inside Futbol, the forward, who has been rumoured with a move to hosts of European teams, has decided to move on at the end of the current campaign.

The Merseyside Reds have been one of the many teams to be rumoured with a move to bring the attacker to the English top-tier.
