Fiorentina To Battle Everton And Liverpool For Verona Starlet

Fiorentina is ready to compete with Everton and Liverpool in an attempt to sign Hellas Verona midfielder Jorginho.

The versatile midfielder has attracted interest from a host of clubs with Premier League duo Liverpool and Everton particularly keen to land the player’s signature.

However, the Viola have now entered the race and are considering a move for the 21-year-old to add to the club’s options in midfield, especially as Adem Ljajic’s future at the club is still in doubt.

The Brazilian born player, who has opted to play for Italy and already has one cap for the Under 21 side, could be tempted with an offer to stay within the peninsula.

However, the club face must act quickly if they are to sign the Verona starlet, as Everton have made the first approach for the player with a €9 million bid according to Sportitalia.

Jorginho has made 77 appearances and scored four goals during his two seasons with Gialloblu.
