Jorginho and his agent, Joao Santos, have in the past few hours arrived in London, England, to finalise his transfer to Manchester City, Italian outlet Sport Mediaset claims.

Santos had been scheduled to arrive in England today, but the revelation that Jorginho is with him is a big development.
Mediaset go as far as to state that Jorginho could officially be a Manchester City player as soon as tomorrow. They report that the fee will be in the region of €55million (£48.3million) plus bonuses.
The claim that the player is in London has yet to be backed up by anyone else in Italy. The 26-year-old has been in Brazil on holiday, with his most recent Instagram Story coming 18 hours ago from his homeland. Any further Instagram updates could clarify if he is in Brazil or England.
Jorginho’s replacement at Napoli, Fabian Ruiz, arrived in Naples today and told reporters he is joining the club from Real Betis in a €30million deal.
Whether or not Jorginho actually is in the UK now, it seems to be just a matter of days before he is finally a Citizen.
