Chelsea have confirmed the signing of Jorginho from Napoli, as the Italian becomes Chelsea’s first signing of the summer.
The 26-year-old has put pen to paper in a five-year deal to join the Blues as Chelsea hijacked the move from Manchester City to sign Jorginho for £57m.
Jorginho revealed how excited he is about the move as he said: “I am absolutely ecstatic to be here at Chelsea. It is not easy to become part of such a big team so I am very, very happy.
“I am excited to play in such an intense league, for a team that gives everything to play and win.”
Club director Marina Granovskaia added: “We are delighted Jorginho has chosen to join Chelsea. He was one of the most coveted midfielders in Europe and will become an important member of the playing squad.
“He has demonstrated his quality working under Maurizio Sarri and we are convinced his signing will help bring further success to Stamford Bridge.”
