Saints Set For January Showdown With Liverpool
Sunday, 11th Oct 2015 09:00
According to several reports in the media Saints are about to come face to face with Liverpool in the January transfer window.
The Express and other media sources are reporting that Saints and Liverpool are about to compete with each other for Napoli's Brazilian starlet Jorginho.
The 23 year old first came to prominence in 2012/13 with Hellas Verona and helped them to promotion to Serie A,.
The following season he scored 7 goals in 18 games in the first half of the season as Verona were the shock side of the season in that they were a comfortable mid table side rather than the relegation fodder they hd expected to have been.
This lead to Napoli signing him in January 2014, he was expected to set the World alight, initially he did well helping Napoli to the Italian Cup Final in which he played the full 90 minutes in a 3-1 win over Fiorentina.
But last season he played only 13 times and this season has only started 3 League games and turning 24 in December he is at a crossroads in his career having not yet made the jump from promising to being the real deal.
The Express are citing Gazzetta Dello Sport in Italy as claiming that Liverpool and Southampton have already made "approaches" to Napoli who are bellieved to value the player at somewhere between 15-22 million euros.
That seems a lot to pay for a player who has not yet made his mark in the game and I would be surprised if we wanted to do business for him at that size of fee.
