Liverpool to step up interest in £15m Italian ace

Liverpool are considering a January move for Hellas Verona midfielder Jorginho, according to reports from The Metro.

The Brazilian-born Italy U-21 international has been one of Serie A’s standout performers this season, helping his newly promoted side to make an impressive start to their foray into the top tier.

His performances have alerted a number of Verona’s domestic rivals and clubs across Europe, with Liverpool firmly among the hunting pack.

Brendan Rodgers is believed to be ready to invest next month, with Steven Gerrard’s injury woes exposing a lack of depth in the centre of the midfield.

Jorginho is able to operate in an advanced position, but is also comfortable in a slightly deeper role, which s appeals to the Anfild chief.

Arsenal and Manchester United have also been linked with his signature, but his chances of playing regularly would appear to be much higher on Merseyside.

Verona are desperate to keep their man, but are aware that regardless of whether or not they stay in the Italian top flight it will be difficult to fend off interest.

A valuation of £15m has been played on the 21-year-old, a figure that Rodgers can afford in the New Year.
