The Italian winger has never left Napoli since joined the Partenopei in 2006. He was loaned to several clubs during his earlier spell with Napoli. However, He gradually grew into one of the best players in Serie A. He was a regular in his last 4 seasons with Napoli, amassing a total of 48 league goals.

Insigne was the club's standout performer in the Champions League. Despite Napoli early elimination from the tournament, the Italian scored 3 goals in a group consisting of PSG and Liverpool. Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis admitted that the Serie A outfits could sell Insigne if they receive an offer that will allow them to find a replacement for the star.

An agile winger with pinpoint passing, Insigne would fit Barcelona's playing style perfectly. He shares identical playing positions to Neymar, as he can play either as a left forward, centre forward or attacking midfielder. He would also be a valuable support for Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez due to his excellent playmaking skills.

The 28-year-old might cost Barcelona a considerable amount of cash, but the Catalans can be rest assured that they would be paying close to how much Neymar could cost.
