Incoming Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has earmarked Napoli star Jorginho as one of his first signings with the club, according to the Daily Express.
The 23-year old Brazilian midfield dynamo has been with the club for a year, after the Naples outfit moved to sign him from Verona.
Southampton have also been linked with a swoop for his services, with a fee between £14.8m and £22.2m mooted to be enough to bring him to these shores.
With compatriots Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Lucas Leiva in the squad – former Borussia Dortmund boss could be set to add another brilliant Brazilian to his squad in a New Year overhaul.
The German tactician has taken the reins at Anfield after predecessor Brendan Rodgers was sacked mere hours after the 1-1 draw with Everton last weekend.
He had led Dortmund to two Bundesliga titles in seven years, as well as the Champions League final in 2013.
