The agent of Napoli midfielder Jorginho has welcomed interest from the Premier League amid continued links with a summer move to Liverpool or Manchester United.

The Brazilian-born Italy international is being targeted by a host of teams in England after a stellar campaign for Napoli, though his side are likely to fall just short of beating Juventus to the Serie A title.

Although Jorginho is settled and happy in Naples, his agent, Joao Santos, is anticipating contact from Premier League sides this summer.

"We'll talk about his contract situation at the end of the season," Santos told RMC Sport.

"If the club wants to do something, we are ready to talk after May 20."

He continued: "Jorginho is happy at Napoli, he is first choice in a team that is challenging for the Scudetto.

"He is also first choice in the Italy squad, so it’s only normal some English clubs will ask for information. Having said that, there is nothing official."

Liverpool have been linked with Jorginho – who has averaged more passes per game than any other player in Serie A.
