The Napoli ace has emerged as a reported transfer target for Liverpool.

According to the Times, Liverpool have identified Napoli midfielder Jorginho as one of their primary transfer targets in the summer.

Jürgen Klopp is thought to be a keen admirer of the Italy international, as he looks to add more strength to his midfield ranks, especially with it looking ever more likely that Emre Can will leave in the summer.

So what do Reds fans need to know about Jorginho?

Here are five facts about the Napoli ace…

1. Jorginho joined Napoli from Verona in January 2014 in a deal worth £8.55. He is now valued at around £25.2 million, according to Transfer Markt.

2. He is a holding midfielder by trade, but has still managed four goals and four assists in 29 appearances in all competitions for Napoli this season.

3. Jorginho was born in Brazil, but represents Italy at international level, having earned three caps for the Azzurri so far.

4. The Napoli ace is 26-years-old and is under contract with the Naples outfit until the summer of 2020.

5. He is an expert penalty taker, having scored all four of his attempts from the spot this season.

Liverpool are definitely a club on the ascension, and if they manage to add Jorginho to their ranks in the summer, they will surely be real contenders for major honours, both domestically and on the continent.
