Manchester United and Liverpool target Jorginho admires the Premier League.

Both clubs are interested in signing the Napoli star to anchor their respective midfields next season and onwards.

While Jorginho was born in Brazil he is a renowned Italy international. On Tuesday night, he aided Italy in a 1-1 draw against England at Wembley.


Asked if he liked the Premier League, Jorginho told Football Italia: “Yes, very much!”

“It was a good game. A difficult game, certainly, against a strong side that had remarkable physical strength and could attack the spaces with real pace and were devastating on the counter-attack.


“I think we put in a strong performance overall and a good result.”

For Liverpool, it’s Jorginho’s range of passing that could potentially make Mo Salah and Sadio Mane even more potent in attack. United, on the other hand, need a passer to quicken transitions from defence to attack with Paul Pogba incapable of fulfilling that role to his max ability.

A fee of £50m has been touted.
