Napoli defensive midfielder Jorginho is at the top of Liverpool‘s summer wish-list, according to reliable reports on Saturday.
The next transfer window may still be just under four months away, but Jurgen Klopp is already planning his summer business.
Jorginho is named as Klopp’s prime target, but Joyce admits the biggest downside to this pursuit is that he would be a first-choice midfield signing “for just about every elite side in Europe.”
That shows how significant acquiring his signature would be, with the 26-year-old one of Napoli’s most important players.
His defensive expertise and quality on the ball have helped take Maurizio Sarri’s team to the top of Serie A, and there are few more influential footballers in his position in Europe.
As well as the interest in Jorginho, the Reds are said to be keen on bringing in a new goalkeeper—Simon Mignolet will move on at the end of the season—as well as a replacement for the departed Philippe Coutinho.
There is a feeling that this side is close to achieving something special, and signing the likes of Alisson and Jorginho can help turn them into title challengers.
