After such a successful campaign, the Man City fans in the Transfer Tavern are looking ahead to a busy summer transfer window. Though they dominated the Premier League this season, it’s fair to say that a very different challenge is on the horizon next term.
Teams will be eager to challenge them more heavily, and it’s safe to expect their rivals to spend big to bridge the gap over the coming weeks.
Fortunately for Pep Guardiola, though, it doesn’t seem like his side will be left standing in the rearview mirror on the transfer front.
According to Goal Italy reporter Sergio Chesi, Man City are looking to tie up a deal for Brazilian midfielder Jorginho before the start of the World Cup – giving them just a few weeks to tie up a transfer.
It’s noted that Napoli are demanding a fee of €60 million (£52.6 million), and so a move won’t be cheap for the club – but the Citizens are clearly keen.
Who is Jorginho?
Jorginho currently plays for the Italian outfit Napoli, who have enjoyed a strong season under Maurizio Sarri.
He’s naturally a central midfielder, and he offers brilliant passing, tackling and excellent ball control.
Certainly more of a defensive player than an offensive one, he’s a real pain for the players that he plays against in that he looks to dominate the middle of the park with his incredible quality on the ball and off of it.
Would he be a good signing?
It’s safe to say that he’d be a good fit at Man City.
He’d be able to provide further balance to a team that is, at times, very attack heavy. Fernandinho needs a long-term replacement, and Jorginho could certainly play that role.
It’s all about minor adjustments and improvements for Pep Guardiola now, and Jorginho would plug a key gap for them.
