Antonio Ottaiano, the agent of Napoli winger Lorenzo Insigne, stated that he is "honoured" to know that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was full of praises of the 23-year-old.
"We take into account the praising reports that Wenger has given about the player," Ottaiano told Italian source TuttoMercato.

"We are honoured that a club like Arsenal could have Lorenzo on their wish list."
The Italian international's handler did not rule out the possibility of Insigne moving to the Emirates in the upcoming transfer window, but admitted that the north Londoners must show a special kind of persistence for something to materialise.
"However, from here to take it to the next level, that is a possible transfer, there is a huge mountain in between named Napoli," he added.
"The (Naples) club consider him without a shadow of a doubt as one of their cardinal players for their ambitious project."
"Hence, as of today, I don't see that there can be any further developments unless Arsenal speak to Napoli directly and Napoli change their view on Lorenzo's role here."
