Manchester United are poised to battle it out with Chelsea in the hunt to sign Jorginho from Napoli this summer transfer window, according to reports in Italy.

Italian tabloid Calcionews24, via Daily Mirror, is reporting that the Red Devils are plotting a summer move to sign the 26-year-old Italy international upcoming transfer window.

Both Chelsea and Manchester United are likely to be on the lookout for remarkable reinforcements this summer after largely disappointing seasons so far.

The Blues are currently outside of the top four spots in the Premier League, while Manchester United are targeting to try and at least finish in the Champions League qualification positions this season.

Jorginho has been in fine form for Napoli so far this term, netting three goals and providing four assists in all competitions for the Serie A club.

Meantime, Chelsea are currently getting ready for their FA Cup quarter-final clash against Leicester City on Sunday afternoon.

English side head into the game on the back of their disappointing 3-0 loss to Spanish giants Barcelona at Camp Nou in the Champions League last month.
