Manchester City are close to completing a £44m deal for Napoli midfielder Jorginho, according to Sky Sports.

The Italian has been linked with multiple Premier League clubs this summer, however, he admitted in March that he was only interested in joining a team that suited his style of play.

After Italy’s 1-1 draw with England earlier this year, the 26-year-old had said: “There are teams in England who play the football I like, keeping the ball on the ground, playing a quick game with one-twos, pressing their opponents high up the pitch.”

“If one of these clubs were interested in me, I’d adapt to them well and they could adapt to my way of playing, which isn’t so common.”

Jorginho’s comments seemed to describe Manchester City perfectly and the Etihad now seems his most likely destination next season, despite reported interest from Liverpool. It’s believed City’s current offer is £40m whilst Napoli have asked for £44m, though a deal is expected to be completed in the next few days.

Agent Joao Santos also confirmed that if City could agree a deal with Napoli, his client would join Pep Guardiola’s side, revealing: “Jorginho is still under contract but if Napoli finds an agreement with City, the player will go to Manchester. Finding an agreement with the English club will not be a problem considering the importance of the team.”

“But, I repeat, that will depend on the decisions of Napoli as the player is tied for another two years.”
