Napoli star Lorenzo Insigne says playing for Barcelona would be a “dream”, but claims he is happy at the Serie A club.
Insigne, 26, has reportedly emerged as a target for Barca as the Liga giants continue to look for reinforcements following Neymar’s departure to Paris Saint-Germain.
Napoli 10/3 to win Serie A
The Italy international scored a late sealer to help Napoli book their place in the Champions League group stage with a 2-0 win at Nice on Tuesday, completing a 4-0 aggregate success.
Insigne cautiously welcomed the link to Barca and acknowledged a move may interest him.
“I thank you for the compliments, but I want to keep doing well with this shirt because I always wanted it,” he told Mediaset Premium.
“Barcelona is the dream for everyone but for now I have the dream of Naples with me.”

Insigne netted in the 89th-minute after Jose Callejon’s opener put Napoli in complete control of the tie.
The Partenopei’s display delighted Insigne, who said: “It was a great team performance.
“We knew we were playing on a difficult field, they’re a good team and caused us some problems, but we were good at staying united.”
