Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea are competing with Manchester City to sign Napoli midfielder Jorginho.

The 26-year-old, who is valued at £60 million, is one of Europes most in-demand midfielders following his impressive season in Serie A.

Jorginho is one of Pep Guardiolas top targets for the summer transfer window and City are understood to be confident of winning the race for the Italy international.

But the midfielders representative has confirmed that City face competition from three other Premier League sides, even though Arsenal have yet to appoint Arsene Wengers successor, while Antonio Contes future at Chelsea remains uncertain.

Im in Brazil, nobody called me from Naples, but English teams have called me, Liverpool, Manchester City, but also Arsenal and Chelsea, Joao Santos told Italian station Radio CRC.

It depends on Napoli and sports director Giuntoli.

Of course it is not difficult to find agreements with teams like these.

I dont know if Maurizio Sarris possible exit would speed up Jorginhos transfer, for Napoli it will be positive to capitalise on the offers then we will talk.

I dont know if Jorginhos future depends on Sarris future.
