Only Premier League clubs will be able to afford Jorginho this summer, according to the agent of the Napoli midfielder, as speculation around the midfielder's future continues.
The Italian international has been linked with a move to Anfield, with suggestions he could boost Jurgen Klopp's options ahead of next season.
Manchester United and Manchester City have also been named as potential interested parties, with the player himself admitting he is open to joining a club who play with 'ball on the ground, quick transitions, high pressure'.
Jorginho's representative, Joao Santos, has been outspoken in recent weeks over the 26-year-old's future, and has now revealed his desire to put a release clause in any potential new deal.
But with supposed disagreement between the club and Santos, the agent believes only an elite band could afford to prise him from Naples.
Speaking on Italian radio, Santos reportedly said: "He's being followed by big teams and that's normal because he plays at the highest levels for Napoli, plus we're talking about an international player now.
"To date, no official offers have arrived.
"Future in England? He has a certain value for Napoli, a certain figure that almost only Premier League clubs can afford.
"Moreover, he can't be sold to another club in Italy.
“Jorginho's only thinking about Napoli and we must wait until the end of the season to make certain assessments.
"As for Napoli, we haven't received a contract offer from them yet. Release clause? I don't agree with them.
"Napoli want to set it at €100million, while we want it at €20million. It’s best to just not put one in."
