Man City make first contacts for Jorginho, also eye Chiesa

Manchester City have formally made their first contacts with Napoli regarding midfielder Jorginho.

Napoli owner and president Aurelio De Laurentiis requested an initial price tag of €60 million, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.

There is a substantial distance between the clubs at the moment though. City are interested in Jorginho but not at that price.

Di Marzio also notes that the Premier League Champions are also following Fiorentina youngster Federico Chiesa.

After having a €40 million offer rejected last summer, Napoli have increased their offer for Chiesa to €50 million plus two players. Man City is unlikely to make an offer convincing Fiorentina to sell but La Viola want to keep Chiesa and build the future around him.
