Liverpool are being linked with a move for the Brazilian midfielder next summer. According to recent reports, the Reds have made the Napoli midfielder their top priority for the summer ahead of the new campaign. Some sources are now claiming that Jorginho has decided to make a switch out of Naples at the end of the season with the Merseysiders keen on pouncing on his signature.

Jurgen Klopp reckons that the Serie A ace could be the perfect replacement for Emre Can, who is set to depart Anfield in favour of a move to Juventus at the end of the campaign. Jorginho has been in terrific form for Napoli this season and has caught the eye with some dazzling displays in the top tier of Italian football.

Jorginho signed for Napoli from Hellas Verona in the winter transfer period of 2014 and has gone on to feature in 30 matches for the Serie A outfit this term, scoring 4 goals and creating 4 assists in all competitions. The Brazilian midfielder will undoubtedly bolster Jurgen Klopp’s midfield options going forward and at 26, he still has his peak years ahead of him which the Merseyside club could look to utilise in the coming years.

The Reds are currently occupying 2nd place in the Premier League table after securing a hard-fought 2-0 victory at home versus Newcastle United on Saturday. The Anfield-based outfit find themselves just above Manchester United, who are in third place with a point separating the two teams at the moment.

However, the five-time European champions are a massive 15 points behind league leaders Manchester City. The addition of Jorginho will strengthen the Reds midfield as they look to bridge the gap between themselves and the Manchester clubs going into the future. Liverpool has the likes of Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Georginio Wijnaldum and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain vying for a place in Jurgen Klopp’s starting eleven so the potential arrival of Jorginho will definitely add competition for places at Anfield.

Jorginho has 3 international caps to his name while playing for the Italian national team. He primarily operates as a defensive midfielder but has a knack for scoring and creating goals as evidenced by his record this season which makes him an ideal asset for any of his potential suitors. It remains to be seen what lies ahead in the future of the Brazilian and whether the Reds can fend off stiff competition in pursuit of his signature in the near future.
