Chelsea have been linked with a move for Napoli midfielder Jorginho, but the agent of the Napoli star has confirmed that there has been no contact with the Blues.
A host of European clubs are believed to be chasing Jorginho with Manchester City leading the chase to sign the Italian midfielder. However, Jorginho’s agent Joao Santos says there’s been no progress on City’s deal and hinted Chelsea could enter the race.
Santos says Chelsea are an ‘important and interesting club’ but insists he’s not been in contact with the Blues.
“Today’s offer [from City]? You have to ask Guintoli [Napoli director],” Santos told Calcio Napoli.
“I’m not negotiation so I cannot say anything because I don’t know if the negoatiation is moving forward.
“Chelsea have never had contact with me so I cannot talk, they’ve never called me.
“They’re an important and interesting club – like Barcelona and Real Madrid – but they’ve never called me.
“I’ll be in Italy this week. In the transfer market things can mature in 15 hours or in 15 days.”
