The 26-year-old has been linked with a move to Liverpool as well and it will be interesting to see where he ends up eventually.
Jorginho could be the replacement for Yaya Toure. The Ivorian is expected to leave the club at the end of this season.
The Brazilian-born Italian has been sensational for Napoli this season and he is one of the main reasons why the Italian side are still in the title race.
The 26-year-old’s playing style will help him fit into Guardiola’s philosophy with ease. He is calm and composed on the ball and his passing range is immaculate.
