Manchester City have been handed a huge boost in their reported pursuit of Italy international star Jorginho, according to The Sun.

The Premier League champions, who defeated Swansea City at the Etihad Stadium this afternoon in the top-flight, have been linked with a move for the Napoli midfielder this summer.

The 26-year-old, who has five international caps for the Azzurri, has scored four goals and provided four assists in 34 appearances in all competitions for the Serie A outfit so far this season.

Jorginho, who joined Napoli from Hellas Verona back in January 2014, has netted six goals in 155 games overall for the club.

Napoli’s Jorginho in action.

The report suggests the defensive central midfielder would favour a move to the Etihad Stadium this summer, despite attracting interest from rivals Manchester United, too.

Both clubs have been keeping close tabs on the Brazilian-born star this term, who is valued at £36m, by transfermarkt.
