Manchester United face competition from Arsenal and Manchester City in the race to sign Napoli midfielder Jorginho, according to a report in England.

The Sun is reporting that the Red Devils are interested in signing the Italy international at the end of the 2017-18 Premier League season.

The same article states Jorginho has a contract that is set to run until 2020 but his current deal hasn’t stopped Premier League clubs sending scouts to watch the Napoli midfielder.

According to the same report, Premier League quartet Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United are all interested in the Brazilian-born Italian star, who is valued at around £60m.

Jorginho has scored two goals and has made four assists in 24 appearances in Serie A this season to help Napoli challenge for the Serie A title.

However, the Naples club suffered a chastening 4-1 loss to AS Roma in Serie A last weekend to cast doubt on their title bid.

Napoli are a point clear of defending Serie A champions Juventus at the top of the table but the Turin side have one game in hand.

Jorginho has established himself as one of the best players in Serie A over the past few seasons.
