Conte to watch Insigne, Jorginho?

Italy Coach Antonio Conte will reportedly take in Napoli’s clash with Athletic Bilbao this week, to watch Lorenzo Insigne and Jorginho.

Conte will be presented to the media this tomorrow morning in Rome as Cesare Prandelli’s replacement in charge of the Azzurri and Il Mattino suggest he won’t hang around in getting to work.

The Naples publication reports that the 45-year-old will be in attendance at the Stadio San Paolo tomorrow evening to take in Napoli’s Champions League Play-off round first leg against Athletic Bilbao.

It is reported that the former Juventus boss is specifically intending to watch Lorenzo Insigne and Jorginho in action.

Insigne was part of the unsuccessful World Cup squad that came home early from Brazil this summer, whilst Brazilian-born Jorginho has hinted more than once at his availability to La Nazionale.

Christian Maggio is another Italy international within Napoli’s ranks, but Il Mattino suggest he is unlikely to come into general consideration.
