Newcastle United fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to speculation linking the club with a move for Lorenzo Insigne.
It has been reported by the Italian news outlet that the Championship club are offering €5 million per year (£4.32m per year) to the 25-year-old, who worked with Magpies’ manager Rafael Benitez in Naples.
Italy's Lorenzo Insigne scores
Insigne, who can play as a winger or as an attacking midfielder, has been at Napoli his entire professional career so far.
The Italy international attacker scored 12 goals and created 65 chances in 37 Serie A appearances for Napoli last season.
In five Europa League matches for the Italian outfit during the 2015-16 campaign, the 25-year-old scored one goal and created seven chances.
The Chronicle reported on Friday that Newcastle are not interested in Insigne.
The British newspaper has claimed that the Championship club have not made an approach for the attacker.

These Insigne rumours continuing.I'm not believing any of them until someone says they'll get a ridiculous tattoo done if it happens #NUFC— Julio Geordio (@Julio_Geordio) August 12, 2016
Not a chance in hell will we sign Insigne. He's a champions league player... Not championship! I mean, it can't happen, can it?! #nufc— Andy Ebdale (@ebdale4) August 12, 2016
If #nufc land Insigne (doubtful) it would be incredible and could only be put down to that Rafa factor.— Nick Cahill (@nickcahill9) August 12, 2016
If we sign a player anywhere the standard of Insigne, I will be absolutely speechless. Rafa is God! #NUFC— Lewis Allman (@Allman22) August 11, 2016
For anyone that says that there is no chance Insigne signs for #NUFC, just look at Rafa Benitez as an example that there is a chance— Robert Tennyson (@Tenno98) August 11, 2016
