According to reports, premier league heavyweights Manchester United have been monitoring Jorginho at Napoli in recent times and are likely to bring the midfielder down to Old Trafford this January.
Manager Jose Mourinho is set to take full advantage of the upcoming winter transfer window by signing new players that can help catch up with Manchester neighbours City.
The former Chelsea boss is particular about his midfield department ahead of January.
Belgium international Marouane Fellaini is likely to be sold this January after failing to agree to a new deal with the red devils.
Veteran midfielder Michael Carrick is also expected to hang his boot at the end of this season, and there are speculations he will join Jose’s backroom staff when he quit playing on the pitch.
A handful of superb midfielders have been linked with the Old Trafford club ahead of next year – and one of them is Dortmund’s, Julian Weigl.
However, according to the Manchester Evening News, the red devils are now keeping tabs on Jorginho at Napoli.
Jorginho joined the Serie A club in 2013 and has evolved into an important member at the club. The Italy international was also impressive during Napoli’s Champions League game against Manchester City last month.
Jose Mourinho has been over-reliant on Nemanja Matic this season, and the former Real Madrid boss needs more options in his midfield department at Old Trafford.
Man United Close To Making First January Signing
Manchester United are on the verge of making their first signing in this January transfer window if media reports from Portugal are anything to go by.
According to the specific publication from the stables of popular Portuguese media outlet O Jogo, Manchester United are closing in on their first transfer this month with the signing of Sporting Lisbon star Bruno Fernandes.
It was revealed that the latest Manchester United offer for Bruno Fernandes is favourable to Sporting Lisbon.
Both Manchester United and Sporting Lisbon have been in talks over Portuguese national team player Bruno Fernandes for the better part of this month and recent reports had said that negotiations had broken down.

EPL: Arsenal Starting XI with Thomas Lemar
Atletico Madrid winger Thomas Lemar has again been linked with a move to Premier League giants Arsenal after failing to live up to his price tag in the Spanish La Liga.
According to the various media reports on the European continent, Thomas Lemar is a target for the Gunners as well as other European sides like Tottenham Hotspur and French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG).
The French World Cup winner has neither scored or assisted any goal in the Spanish La Liga this season despite making 15 appearances.
Thomas Lemar also had no goal output in six group stage games in the Champions League last year.
Atletico Madrid signed him from AS Monaco at the start of the last campaign in a transfer said to be worth around £51.5m.

Lemar almost joined Arsenal in the summer of 2017 but the transfer didn’t go through as AS Monaco were unable to sign a replacement in time before that summer’s transfer window ended.
The French winger was seen as a like-for-like signing to replace Alexis Sanchez that summer after Manchester City made a bid to sign the Chilean international.
Possible Arsenal XI with Lemar: Bernd Leno; Hector Bellerin, David Luiz, Pablo Mari, Sead Kolasinac; Lucas Torreira, Granit Xhaka, Mesut Ozil, Thomas Lemar, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Gabriel Martinelli.

Liverpool Starting XI With Red-hot Timo Werner

Liverpool have 16 more points than nearest challengers and Premier League champions Manchester City at the league summit after winning 22 games from 23 Premier League outings.

Timo Werner is said to be a key transfer target for Liverpool though a move in this January transfer window is largely unlikely.

Recent reports have claimed that the player has agreed a deal for him to join Liverpool this summer ahead of Chelsea who are also in the mix to sign him.
Liverpool XI with Werner: Alisson Becker; Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, Virgil Van Dijk, Andy Robertson; Jordan Henderson, Fabinho; Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino; Timo Werner.
