Liverpool leading the race for Napoli ace Jorginho
Liverpool have already wrapped up a deal to bring in Naby Keita this summer. But they’re still looking for more ways to improve their midfield options.
Jordan Henderson’s injury problems and Emre Can’s contract situation means they could do with another defensive midfielder. And there aren’t many better than Napoli’s Jorginho.
The 26-year-old is reported to be Jurgen Klopp’s top target in midfield. Our traders have the Reds as 5/2 joint-favourites with Juventus for his signature.
But Manchester United and Manchester City (both 3/1) are understood to be sniffing around as well.
It’s not hard to see why so many top teams are chasing him.
The Italy international has been a key figure in the Serie A side’s title push this season. He reads the game brilliantly and has real quality on the ball.
He’s also got the legs needed for Klopp’s high-intensity system.
Liverpool already have a brilliant front three. Adding Jorginho would give them a top-class midfield unit too.
