Chelsea and Arsenal will step up their interest in Liverpool midfielder target Jorginho, according to the Daily Star.

The highly-rated Hellas Verona midfielder was heavily linked with a Premier League move during the summer, but after a transfer collapsed, he's started the 2013/14 campaign in Italy, and, in scintillating form.

Jorginho's impressive performances - which have helped the newly-promoted side to fourth place in Serie 'A' - have not gone unnoticed, with Gunners boss Arsene Wenger ready to lure the 21-year-old to the Emirates Stadium in January.

However, Chelsea are also watching the player closely, as Jose Mourinho weighs up a rival bid that will take the talented youngster to Stamford Bridge at the turn of the year.

Representatives from both Arsenal and Chelsea were in attendance to see Jorginho score twice in Verona's 3-2 victory over Parma at the weekend, according to reports in Italy.

Arsenal are understood to have held talks with the Brazilian-born playmaker last week, which is also likely to spark renewed interest from long-term admirers Liverpool.

Brendan Rodgers was keen to bring Jorginho to Anfield before the close of the last transfer window, but failed to reach agreement over a price, with Verona manager Andrea Mandorlini still holding out for £10million for the attacking midfielder.
