Jorginho would be a good addition to the Liverpool FC team, according to Guardian journalist Paolo Baldini.

The Reds have been linked with a potential move to sign the Italy international following his impressive start to the 2017-18 Serie A season.

Indeed, the 25-year-old playmaker has scored one goal and has made one assist to help Napoli hoist themselves to the top of the Serie A table.

Liverpool FC are in the market to sign a deep-lying midfielder given Jordan Henderson’s injury problems and a lack of cover for the captain.

According to reports in Italy, Liverpool FC have an interest in the Brazilian-born Azzurri star ahead of the January transfer window.

Speaking to The Guardian’s Football Weekly podcast, Serie A expert Baldini claimed that Jorginho would be a good signing for Klopp’s Liverpool FC team.

“He is running things for Napoli,” Baldini said.

“He is a very elegant midfielder. He runs the game from midfield. He could do a job at Liverpool.”

Jorginho moved to Napoli from Verona in the 2014 summer transfer window.

The Italian midfielder has scored five goals in 133 appearances in all competitions for the Serie A club.

Liverpool sold long-serving Lucas Leiva to Lazio in the summer to leave Klopp short on defensive midfielders.

The Reds signe four players in the summer as well as agreeing to a £48m deal to sign RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita next summer.
