Napoli midfielder Jorginho has regularly been mentioned in the transfer gossip pages over the last few weeks.
The 26-year-old has attracted the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool, if reports are to be believed.
Now, according to Spanish publication Sport, La Liga giants Barcelona have entered the fray for Jorginho.
The Italian, who joined Napoli in 2014 from Verona, has caught the eye this season for his performances deep in midfield.
In total, Jorginho has made 35 appearances in all competitions, including 31 starts in Serie A.
As well performing his defensive duties consistently, the midfielder has also contributed with three goals and four assists.
The Italy international would certainly give Jurgen Klopp another option in the middle of the park if he were to join Liverpool.
With Emre Can’s future at the club up in the air, Jordan Henderson is the only player that can take on that role, although Georginio Wijnaldum has trialed in that area this season.
The Daily Mail claims that Manchester City are leading the race for Jorginho’s signature, but it is the interest from Barcelona that is bothering them.
Liverpool have history with the Catalan giants having been forced into selling the likes of Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho in recent years.
Aaaah Barca’s old strategy:
Buy all the decent prospects to plicate fans and so rivals can’t have them. Bench them till they lose their edge then sell them once their career is over.
Real do the same thing.
Players get a fat short term pay cheque.
Agents love them.

No worries and it doesn’t matter at all. As long as they don’t have Klopp as manager they won’t get the best out of the players. Never! Klopp is the key! Boom💥 #lfc

I'm feeling confident Jorginho will go to City, they have the biggest need.
