It seems Manchester City are out to sign a deal with Napoli midfielder Jorginho as his agent claims they now have a verbal agreement in place.
The Italy international appears to be one of the topmost attractive players in the transfer list this summer, as manager Pep Guardiola moves to bolster his options in the middle of the park.
Agent Joao Santos has now claimed that the transfer is still well on course to completion despite no documents having been signed by either party.
“Jorginho is now in Fortaleza with his family on vacation,” Santos is quoted by CalcioNapoli24 via City Watch.
“In football you need signed documents, without this you can do little.
“We have a verbal agreement with City, now we are waiting for Napoli to find the agreement and Manchester [City] to define the deal. Everything depends on this aspect, next week could be the one.”
Jorginho has represented Napoli more than 130 times since joining from Italian rivals Hellas Verona in 2014.
