Manchester City are closing in on a deal for Napoli's £50 million-rated midfielder Jorginho and are ready to splash the cash on a marquee signing if the possibility presents itself.
Reports state that City want to make just two signings this summer as they look to build on their Premier League-winning campaign.
They are pursuing a deep-lying midfielder - now likely to be Jorginho - and a forward; the same positions they attempted to strengthen in January.
If all goes to plan City will have concluded their business before this summer’s World Cup.
During the winter transfer window, City unsuccessfully pushed to sign Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk and, first, Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal and then Riyad Mahrez from Leicester.
But it is Jorginho, not Fred, who has emerged as City’s top target for the deep-lying midfield role. The Italy international is keen to work with Pep Guardiola and a deal is close to being sealed, although Napoli’s involvement in Serie A's title race is likely to delay an official announcement.
