Napoli sporting director Riccardo Bigon is reported as travelling to Milan to meet with Verona midfielder Jorginho’s agent.
The Vesuviani have been increasingly linked with tying up a move for the Brazilian youngster, alongside similar plans for Tottenham’s Etienne Capoue.
On from Coach Rafa Benitez revealing yesterday evening that the club expect to wrap something this week, Sky Sport Italia report that sporting director Bigon is travelling to Milan.
It is believed that following on from talks with Verona counterpart Sean Sogliano, Bigon will today meet with Jorginho’s agent to discuss terms of a January transfer.
Napoli are believed to have proposed to Verona a deal around the €10m mark for the 22-year-old.
Bigon was initially believed to be heading to London to talk with Tottenham over Capoue this morning, but is expected to still make that journey once talks in Milan for Jorginho are concluded.
