The England midfielder retires at the end of this season and Jorginho would be the ideal alternative on paper.
The Napoli star is one of the best midfielders in Serie A right now and he could be a quality addition for most teams in the country.
Napoli are often difficult to negotiate with and it will be interesting to see whether Manchester United get their man in the summer.
If Jorginho becomes available, other European giants are likely to fight for his services as well.
Jose Mourinho is putting together a squad capable of beating Manchester City to the title and signing players like Jorginho is a step in the right direction.
The Red Devils have already signed Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal earlier this month.
