According to recent reports, Manchester City are ahead of other English Premier League, EPL, sides in the pursuit of highly rated Serie A midfielder, Jorginho.
Daily Mirror reports that Jorginho’s agent, Joao Santos, has confirmed on Radio station CRC in Brazil that the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea are interested in his client.
The Mirror quotes him as saying: “I’m in Brazil, nobody called me from Naples, but English teams have called me, Liverpool, Manchester City, but also Arsenal and Chelsea.”
However, the whole situation gets quite murky when you read comments from Santos in another report from Sky Sports.
This report indicates that Premier League champions Manchester City are favourites to sign the midfielder, and they have already reached an agreement with the player.
Santos said: “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.
