Chelsea midfielder Jorginho has been linked with a move to Juventus following Sarri’s decision to quit Stamford Bridge for the Serie A Champions.

Jorginho arrived Stamford Bridge last summer with Sarri after the Italian identified him as the player to help implement Sarriball at Stamford Bridge.

Various reports claim Sarri has urged Juventus to sign Jorginho and the agent of the midfielder has also admitted Jorginho is open to joining Sarri at Juventus.

According to Standard Sport, Chelsea have no interest in allowing Jorginho to join former coach Maurizio Sarri at Juventus.

Despite Jorginho coming under heavy criticism from fans last season, Chelsea won’t listen to offers for the Italian international.

Jorginho cost Chelsea £57.4million last summer and made 57 appearances for Chelsea in all competitions last season.

Meanwhile, Jorginho’s agent Joao Santos has not ruled out the possibility of the midfielder going to Juventus, saying: “Chelsea have a four-year contract with the lad. We’ll wait a few days to figure out whether there is any truth in this interest mentioned in the papers.

“His past at Napoli won’t be an issue, because Jorginho is a professional. Right now, Jorginho is happy at Chelsea.

“He found a great atmosphere and we can’t really say that he’d like to go elsewhere, but anything can happen on the transfer market. We’ll wait and see.”
