Man City target Jorginho not included in Napoli's pre-season training camp

Real Betis midfielder Fabian Ruiz - seen as Jorginho’s replacement - will have a medical with Napoli after a deal was agreed, according to Sky in Italy.

Manchester City target Jorginho has been left out of Napoli’s pre-season training camp, as both clubs continue talks over the midfielder.

The Italy international was not included in Carlo Ancelotti's 23-man squad list in Northern Italy, increasing the prospect of a move to the Premier League champions being completed.

Napoli reportedly value the player, who still has two years left on his contract, at around £53m and City have already seen a £44m bid for the Brazil-born player rebuffed during the summer transfer window.

Meanwhile, Real Betis midfielder Fabian Ruiz - seen as Jorginho's replacement - will have a medical with Napoli after a deal was agreed, according to Sky in Italy.
