Man City are linked with Italian starlet, Jorginho. The Italian international has played in the heart of the Napoli midfield since 2014. Jorginho still has two years remaining on his current contract with Serie A side Napoli, although his agent Joao Santos has fuelled speculation of a possible departure this summer.
Full Name: Jorge Luiz Frello Filho
Date of Birth: 20 December 1991
Height: 1.8 m
Nationality: Italian, Brazilian
But what else we know about Jorginho?
Jorginho is a defensive midfielder known for his one touch passing and through balls. He is someone can play as an attacking midfielder as well as a defensive midfielder. His tactical awareness and IQ for the game are extremely high.
Jorginho lacks aerial attributes but it doesn’t come into play very often in the midfield. He also lacks physicality, so his tackling ability is a little lacking.
Would he fit in at Manchester City?
As Napoli, Manchester City adopt a similar three-man midfield (4-3-3) formation. Jorginho will suit to Guardiola’s ‘passing style’ of play perfectly. With Fernandinho now 33, Jorginho would offer further options in that position.
Jorginho has already made a name for himself but it will be a challenge to work in England. He will certainly be a platinum addition under Guardiola.
