Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has confirmed that he expects a deal to be concluded soon for Jorginho to join Manchester City.
City’s move for the Italian has been ongoing for some time, with De Laurentiis claiming to have rejected a bid of £44m.
Now he says City are moving closer towards the asking price.
“I think the deal can be done in the next few days,” De Laurentiis said.
“Everything is possible as we have a good relationship with Manchester City and their people but we must negotiate.
“We are still not in agreement over the price for the player, but we’ll be near to the conclusion as they made an effort in the last few days.”
