The 26 year old has been credited as one of the key reasons for Napoli topping the Serie A table this season, with his excellent passing dictating play in the heart of the Italian side’s midfield.
Jorginho’s current contract expires in 2020, and it’s likely that the agent’s comments are partly to encourage Napoli into starting negotiations over a new deal.
