Napoli midfielder Jorginho's agent Joao Santos has confirmed interest in his client from more than one club but admitted that Napoli will have to decide the next course of action in the midfielder's future destination. The Serie A club were Juventus' closest challengers for the title this season, but the Turin giants secured their fifth straight crown with few games to spare.
Napoli have secured Champions League football for next season and the Italians could be keen to hold to all their key players including Jorginho. The defensive midfielder has been a key cog in Maurizio Sarri's team this season making 37 appearances in all competitions.
The player's agent had indicated earlier in the year that Arsenal and Real Madrid are interested in his client but were yet to make a formal offer, which could tempt the midfielder into a move despite holding a five-year contract with the Serie A club. Arsene Wenger is looking to bolster his midfielder this summer as he looks to bring in reinforcements to replace Mikel Arteta, Mathieu Flamini and Tomas Rosicky, who are all likely to depart following the expiry of their contracts.
The Gunners are linked with a number of midfielders with German publication Rheinische Post reporting that the north London club have submitted a formal offer to Borussia Monchengladbach to sign Granit Xhaka in the summer. Jorginho could be an alternative as bringing in a defensive minded midfielder is a priority for the French manager and Santos believes that the Brazilian-born Italy international could be let go if it helps boost the coffers at Napoli.
"I don't know what [Napoli coach Maurizio] Sarri's intentions are," Santos said, as quoted by talkSPORT.
"It would be important to have continuity in the project though. Jorginho has done well, playing in a team which has done well, so we have to understand what Napoli think of his future. Unfortunately that's modern football, you can renew and then leave two months later."
"Given the season he's had, it's normal that some clubs are interested in Jorginho, and I think some talk has also reached Napoli. If he were to be sold it would be to make a profit for the club," Jorginho's agent explained.
