Cats must go big for Lorenzo’s toil

Midweek Sport - - ON THE NOSE -

PAOLO DI CANIO has failed with

a £5.5mil­lion bid for Italy in­ter­na­tional Lorenzo In­signe. The Sun­der­land boss wants the

Napoli for ward as the 10th sum­mer sign­ing in his

Wear­side rev­o­lu­tion. But the Black Cats must up their Napoli of fer af­ter

re­jected the open­ing bid. Di Canio has been a long-ter m

ad­mirer of In­signe who starred for Italy in their run

to the fi­nal of the Euro­pean Un­der-21 Cham­pi­onship

last month. The 22-year-old was a bit-part player

at Napoli last sea­son but has been assur ed of

a big­ger r ole un­der new boss Rafa Ben­itez. Di Canio has also r ekin­dled his

in­ter est in Lazio defender Luis Pedr o Ca­vanda. The

22-year-old can op­er­ate in both full-back po­si­tions.
