The Liverpool midfield could be dancing to a samba beat next season if recent reports are to believed. Outlets in England and Italy claim Jürgen Klopp has placed Jorginho at the very top of his summer wish list.

The Reds are seemingly in the hunt for a controller with Emre Can set to leave on a free transfer and Jordan Henderson not exactly the most reliable option at the base of the midfield.

The 26-year-old is an immediate upgrade on the Liverpool skipper, as discussed in a detailed feature on the Football Whispers website.

The Brazilian-born Italy international appears to be angling for a move away from the Stadio San Paolo and isn’t shy about telling the media.

Speaking in the press after the 1-1 draw with England, the former Verona man revealed he feels as though he would thrive in the English top flight: “I think the Premier League suits my game, but it also depends on who I have next to me because I need to be surrounded by players with certain characteristics,

“There are teams in England who play the football I like, keeping the ball on the ground, playing a quick game with one-twos, pressing their opponents high up the pitch. If one of these clubs were interested in me, I’d adapt to them well and they could adapt to my way of playing, which isn’t so common.” 

Liverpool’s style isn’t too dissimilar to that of Napoli’s meaning, in theory, the playmaker could slot straight into the midfield at Anfield. The video above shows exactly why the Reds might be tempted into going big on the Serie A star this summer.
