Napoli midfielder Jorginho will join Manchester City this summer if they can reach a deal with the Serie A side, according to the Italian’s agent.
Sky Sports News understands City are keen on signing the 26-year-old having monitored him for a while and he is on the Premier League champions' list of summer targets.
Napoli reportedly value the player, who still has two years left on his current deal, at around £53m.
Jorginho's agent Joao Santos said: "Jorginho is still under contract but if Napoli finds an agreement with City, the player will go to Manchester.
"Finding an agreement with the English club will not be a problem considering the importance of the team.
"But, I repeat, that will depend on the decisions of Napoli as the player is tied for another two years.
"City are the champions of England and are one of the top European clubs. If Napoli and City find a solution, we can talk about it. Otherwise, he will be happy to continue in Naples.
"At the moment, I have not heard anything from the leadership of Napoli. I hope to hear from the director and maybe in the next few days I will be in Naples to talk about it."
Jorginho has made 36 appearances for Napoli this season, scoring three goals, including one against City in the Champions League in November.
