Arsenal, and AC are continuing to track winger Lorenzo Insigne, according to calciomercato.com, after contract talks between the player and his club reached an impasse.

The Italian website reports that the 25 year old is holding out for €5 million a season (£83,000-a-week), a sizeable increase on his €1.8 million-a-season (£30,000-a-week) he is currently on. owner won’t go above the €2.5 million (£41,500-a-week) already on the table.

Insigne had a tough start to the season after failing to score in his first 12 league matches. He was booed off after missing a penalty in the 3-2 home defeat to in the back in October, but after breaking his duck in front of goal against Udinese in mid November, he has scored six goals in nine games.

Insigne’s current deal does expire 2019, but it looks likely will cash in on the player if contract talks don’t resume.
