Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has admitted his admiration for Napoli striker Lorenzo Insigne.

The Italy U21 star attracted interest from Sunderland and Manchester City over the summer.

Wenger, ahead of Arsenal's Champions League tie with Napoli, said: "He [Insigne] is mobile, he is not tall but quick and very good in the transition from defence to attack.

"He is a good dribbler as well and is an intelligent mover.

"That makes him an interesting prospect."
