Napoli signed Insigne when he was only 15. Since then, he has been a part of some great Napoli teams who have failed to win anything substantial since 2010.

The forward found more success with the Italian national team where he scored 10 goals in 53 games. However, he did win the UEFA Euros 2021 trophy with the national team and also bagged two goals for his side.
