Agent 'no UK offers' for Jorginho

Jorginho would suit the Premier League well, said the Napoli midfielder’s agent, but “there are no official and concrete proposals from the UK.”

He was born in Brazil and opted to play for Italy, having spent most of his life in the Peninsula.

“We’re waiting for May. We hope Napoli can win the league. Then if Napoli wants to renew the contract, we can talk about it,” agent Joao Santos told Sun Sports.

“The same if they want to sell Jorginho. There are no official and concrete proposals for him from UK.

“I don’t know if De Laurentiis will call me at the end of the season to extend his contract. I suppose that [he will]. We are available to deal with [the club]. He has become Neapolitan and is in a family. He is a top level player.”

Jorginho has been linked with Napoli’s Serie A rivals Juventus, but also Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City.

“I follow the Premier League. I’m sure Jorginho has the characteristics to play there. He runs more than 13km every game and he has a great technique. I don’t have a figure in my mind, the price is set by the President.”
