Arsenal eye Napoli midfielder Jorginho

Arsenal have reportedly stepped up their interest to sign Liverpool and Manchester United target Jorginho from Napoli, according to the Daily Express.

The 23-year-old has become a crucial figure in the Napoli starting XI, established himself in a first-team position this season after a wobbly debut campaign at the Stadio San Paolo.

The Brazilian-born Italian attacker joined Napoli from Verona in 2014 and has made 23 appearances last term. He is regarded as one of the most highly-rated midfielders in Serie A.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is in the middle of a serious injury crisis at the north London, with the likes of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jack Wilshere, Theo Walcott, Aaron Ramsey and Mikel Arteta all are currently ruled out of action.

According to The Sun, the Gunners have sent their scouts to Italy on Sunday in order to watch Jorginho in action, with Wenger seeking reinforcements at the Emirates.

If the deal goes through, Jorginho could be use as an alternative to players like Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini which could be prove a smart move from the Gunners.
