Liverpool are preparing a January move for Hellas Verona playmaker - and reported Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal target - Jorginho, according to the Daily Mirror.
Italian publication TMW understands that the 22-year-old midfielder will be the subject of a January bid from the Merseyside club, who are looking to further strengthen their squad and maintain their surprise challenge for the Premier League title.
Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is keen to bring Jorginho to Anfield, and will match Napoli's £8million bid for the Brazilian-born star before the close of the transfer window.
Jorginho has scored seven goals in 18 appearances in Serie 'A' this season, prompting admiring glances from a number of different suitors.
Manchester United manager David Moyes has been credited by the London Metro with an interest in taking the player to Old Trafford, while Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is also understood to be monitoring Jorginho's situation.
Chelsea complete the clutch of English sides with sights set on Jorginho, with talkSPORT reporting Jose Mourinho's intention to try and add him to his ranks at Stamford Bridge.
Verona's director of sport, Sean Sogliano, confirmed that the club has received one bid for the midfielder, but that was from Chelsea's former interim manager Rafa Benitez, now in charge at Stadio San Paolo.
"I can confirm we have received an offer from Napoli [for Jorginho], there will be some news soon, we are evaluating it," he told CalcioNapoli24.it.
