Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal are embroiled in a three-way battle to sign Italy international midfielder Jorginho, according to The Sun.

The Premier League trio, who currently sit second, first and sixth in the top-flight standings respectively, have all been linked with a summer swoop for the in-form Napoli star.

The 26-year-old, who has three international caps for the Azzurri, has scored four goals and provided four assists in 30 appearances in all competitions for the Serie A title contenders so far this season.

Jorginho, who was in fact born in Imbituba, Brazil, has netted six goals in 151 games overall for the Italian club since arriving from Hellas Verona back in January 2014.

Napoli’s Jorginho scores against Udinese from close range.

The report claims United, City and The Gunners have all sent scouts to watch the defensive midfielder in action for Napoli, who value their prized asset at around £60m.

Jorginho is contracted at the Stadio San Paolo until June 2020.
