Agent: 'City still working on Jorginho deal'

The agent of Jorginho still expects the Italy international to swap Napoli for Manchester City this summer, despite talks between the two sides dragging on.

Agent Joao Santos has provided a further update on Jorginho's proposed move from Napoli to Manchester City, insisting that both teams are working hard to complete a deal.

The Italy international, reportedly valued at no more than £44m by the Citizens, has been at the centre of drawn-out talks over the past month.

Serie A runners-up Napoli are continuing to haggle over a higher fee, potentially rising to £59m, but Santos is now in England and expects a transfer to go through for the 26-year-old soon.

"Manchester City are working to close the deal with Napoli - any moment could be the right one," he told Radio Kiss Kiss. "The player is in Brazil.

"I'm in my house in England, waiting for a call from [sporting director Cristiano] Giuntoli or [owner Aurelio] De Laurentiis. When it arrives, I will go to meet the leadership of Manchester City."

Jorginho has featured more than 130 times for Napoli since joining from Italian rivals Hellas Verona in 2014.
