|Napoli have opened talks over a new contract with Arsenal target Jorginho|
The Brazilian has been heavily linked with a January move to the Emirates in recent months after impressing in Serie A.
Arsenal are on the hunt for a defensive midfielder to provide competition for Francis Coquelin and have identified the former Verona man as an ideal addition.
However they may now struggle to snap up Jorginho as, according to Sky Italia, Napoli have begun contract talks with the player.
The Italian club are desperate to hold onto the 23-year-old and hope that a new deal could persuade him to stay put.
