Could Insigne join Liverpool this summer?
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has responded to suggestions that the Reds could move for Napoli star Lorenzo Insigne this summer.
The Italian forward has been impressive for many years both in Serie A and on the European stage.
While Napoli have certainly not lived up to expectations, Insigne has still scored a respectable 13 goals and assisted seven.
As a result, there has been some talk about his future this week.
As a result, several names have been thrown into the ring ahead of the summer transfer window.
Liverpool and Chelsea are two clubs who have been linked with a move.
Now, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has responded to those rumours.
‘We will not even try it’
Speaking at his press conference ahead of the clash with Huddersfield this weekend, Klopp ruled out any move for Insigne.
In fact, he claimed Liverpool will not even attempt to sign him.
‘We will not sign Lorenzo Insigne,’ Klopp explained, as quoted by the Mail.
‘He’s a very good player, and he has a long-term contract at Napoli. We will not even try it.’

Klopp went on to speak a little about Liverpool’s transfer plans this summer.
While he limited expectations, Klopp explained that Liverpool will keep their eye out for potential deals.
‘The team is pretty well balanced. Our plans are not for the public, that’s how it is,’ Klopp continued.
‘Will it be the biggest transfer window of Liverpool? No, but you’d have been surprised if I said yes.
‘Our eyes are always open. We always look. What happens will happen. It’s if and when so there’s nothing to say at the moment.’
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has this afternoon provided a fitness update on his squad, ahead of the FA Cup final.
Man City vs Watford
The Citizens are set to take on Watford at Wembley tomorrow evening, in the respective clubs’ final outing of the season.
City will head into proceedings as overwhelming favourites to secure glory, having dominated domestically once again over the course of the campaign.
In fact, so impressive have Pep Guardiola’s men been this season, that if they do manage to push past the Hornets, the Sky Blues will become the first English club in history to seal a domestic treble.
After securing the League Cup back in February with a showpiece victory over Chelsea, City went on to clinch their 2nd-straight Premier League title last weekend, courtesy of a 4-1 win over Brighton.
Back 2 Back Premier League Champions! 🏆🏆
We reigned and we retained! 💪

Fernandinho in, Mendy out
And the Citizens’ hopes of adding to their already-impressive trophy haul have this afternoon been boosted further.
Speaking in his final press conference of the campaign a short time ago, Pep Guardiola was asked for a personnel update on his squad.
And the Spanish tactician confirmed that, following the bones of a month on the sidelines with a knee injury, City midfield lynchpin Fernandinho has returned to training, and will be available to feature at Wembley.
Long-term absentee Benjamin Mendy, though, is set to miss out:

Palace lose to Sheffield United
Crystal Palace traveled to newly-promoted Sheffield United on Sunday, August 18th.
The Eagles would draw their opening game of the Premier League season vs an Everton side that finished the tie with 10 men.
Sunday’s game didn’t go much better for Roy Hodgson’s side either.
Palace created very little vs Chris Wilder’s side with a John Lundstram’s strike ultimately the difference-maker on the day.
GOAL FOR SHEFF UTD!
Sheffield United work it nicely down the left, Freeman’s effort is spilt by Guaita and Lundstram is there to bury it.

Hodgson on Milivojevic
Prior to Sunday’s defeat, Hodgson discussed a number of topics in an interview including Palace’s summer transfer business and Luka Milivojevic signing a new contract.
Milivojevic has been one of Palace’s top players for the past few seasons.
In the 2019/20 campaign, the Palace midfielder would score 12 and assist two in 38 league outings.
Milivojevic’s contract was due to expire in 2020 but he has signed a new deal keeping him at Palace till 2023.
On getting the 28-year-old to put pen to paper on a new deal, Hodgson stated:
“He is our signing of the summer.
“Although I’m hoping the other three might get a look-in in that respect.
“It definitely means a lot to the club to have got Luka’s signature on a piece of paper for another four years.
“He’s been such an outstanding player and servant – both by his actions on the field and how he conducts himself off it too.
“When a player of his quality gets into the last year of his contract, you’d be surprised if there aren’t an awful lot of clubs keen to take him off you.” As quoted by the Evening Standard.
Hodgson on transfers
Hodgson also commented on Palace’s summer transfer business and while they did bring in three players, the former England manager didn’t sound too happy with the business conducted:
“Yes, we’ve signed players but we’ve not exactly blasted the market.
“If you take it as a trio of Steve Parish, Dougie Freedman and myself we wanted certain things to happen, certain players to come in and strengthen in areas that we needed strengthening so when at the end of the window you haven’t been able to achieve that there is a sense of disappointment and failure.” As quoted by the Evening Standard.
A Manchester City victory over Wolves tonight would see Citizens boss Pep Guardiola break a long-standing Premier League record, currently held by Jose Mourinho.
Wolves vs Man City
The English champions are set for a tricky trip to Molineux later today, in their latest league outing.
City will head into proceedings on the back of an upturn in form of late, culminating in 4 straight victories across all competitions.
The latest of these came last weekend, when the Manchester giants put Leicester City to the sword in comprehensive fashion, by 3 goals to 1.
The scintillating stretch of form being enjoyed by table-toppers Liverpool, though, means that City simply can’t afford to drop any points moving forward.
The Reds’ drubbing of Leicester last night saw them move a hefty 14 points clear of Pep Guardiola’s men in the Premier League table.
Pep closing on Mou
A win for City at Molineux later today, though, would prove significant not only in terms of keeping their admittedly-slim title hopes at least somewhat alive, but also in the career of manager Guardiola.
As things stand, Sky Blues boss Guardiola has racked up 99 victories in the Premier League, since his arrival at the Etihad in 2016.
The Spaniard has managed this in just 132 English top-flight fixtures.
The fewest number of games ever taken by a manager to reach 100 wins in the Premier League, as things stand, is 142.
This record was set by Jose Mourinho during his time with Chelsea.
If Manchester City manage to put Wolves to the sword tonight, though, then Guardiola will replace the current Spurs boss in the record books, with an impressive 9 games to spare.
Guardiola has won 99 of his 132 Premier League games so far.
