On Saturday evening it was revealed by Paul Joyce in the Times that Liverpool’s primary target for midfield this summer is Napoli’s Jorginho.
The club have tracked the Brazilian born Italian for years, but his performances this term have propelled Napoli to the top of Serie A.
Last week, EOTK wrote a piece telling the club to go all out for the 26-year-old, so we’re glad they listened!
Below, you’ll see some of his best bits from 2017/18.
Not only can he pick a pass from deep, in the manner in which Xabi Alonso used to during his heyday, but he breaks up play and wins back possession.
In short, he’s the perfect no.6 for next season, especially with the world-class Naby Keita set to take up one of the box-to-box roles alongside him.
