Liverpool are ready to beat off Tottenham for the signature of Jorginho.
The 22-year-old was part of the team that helped Hellas Verona win promotion to Serie A, with his displays catching the eye of clubs across Europe.
Brendan Rogers was among those who made tentative contact over the player’s availability but had failed to follow up on his earlier interest.
The player remained at Verona for the first half of this season where he continued his good form before Napoli signed him on a co-ownership deal in January where he has gone on to make 11 appearances for Rafa Benitez’s side.
Jorginho’s agent Joao Santos held discussions with Arsenal while he was in London this month but no deal was reached, FDN sources confirmed, leaving the door open to Spurs chairman Daniel Levy to make his move. (SportsDirectNews)
