Liverpool appear to be in the market for a new defensive midfielder, possibly because Emre Can could be on his way out of the exit door.
The Germany international is yet to sign a new contract with the Reds and his current one expires in the next few months.
Napoli’s Jorginho has been a name that has frequently been mentioned in the transfer gossip pages.
The 26-year-old was in fine form this season, making 39 appearances in all competitions, and he even contributed with four goals and four assists.
Liverpool were one club linked to the midfielder, but it seems that manager Jurgen Klopp will not win the race for his signature.
According to The Times, the Merseyside outfit have cooled their interest due to Manchester City seemingly steaming ahead.
The Italian would have been a positive addition to Klopp’s team, but it seems that he will be playing for the Premier League champions next season.
