The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern have been reacting to a story from SPORT that claims Barcelona are interested in Napoli midfielder Jorginho in the upcoming transfer window. Jorginho has been enjoying a brilliant season with Napoli and was already being targeted by Liverpool, Manchester City and Man United before Barcelona registered an interest.

The Liverpool fans propping our bar up would love to see Jorginho brought into the club. The midfielder is comfortable both in and out of possession and would be a perfect, more consistent version of Emre Can, who will be leaving Liverpool for Juventus at the end of his contract this summer. Whilst Can is leaving and Jorginho has a large number of suitors, the club can at least rely on the fact that RB Leipzig’s Naby Keita will be on his way to Merseyside in the summer.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have a strong midfield consisting of Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain, Georginio Wijnaldum and Adam Lallana but with only Henderson being able to operate in a defensive midfield role, the club could do with someone like Jorginho who could operate alongside or ahead of Henderson at the base of Liverpool’s three-man midfield. The fans will be looking forward to the summer as they prepare to bolster their squad ahead of the next season as they look to build on a strong campaign this term.

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

Every player LFV tried to buy, those teams will always intervene. Because they know our scouts are good.
