Jorginho was signed by former Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri last season as the Italian brought him along from Napoli.

Jorginho and Sarri enjoyed a successful time at Napoli, but moving to the Premier League didn’t really favour the central midfielder who took a longer time to adapt to the English game. Jorginho was criticised by fans often times last season and was even booed on two separate occasions.

But his game improved towards the end of last season and he has been a massive feature under Frank Lampard this season, playing in every game so far.

Jorginho has five years left on his contract, and his agent Joao Santos, told Radio Kiss Kiss that he sees his player staying at Stamford Bridge for the foreseeable future.

“No, nothing of the sort happened,” said Santos of suggestions Jorginho would follow Sarri to Juventus.

“We have mid-to-long-term project with Chelsea, similar to when he joined Hellas Verona and then Napoli. There are five years left on his contract and let’s say he’d like to stay for at least another four years.”

Jorginho has recently revealed that coming to the Premier League has made him a better player.

He told reporters while on Euro 2020 qualifying duty: “I think I had a fantastic first season and it was fundamental for my growth process.

“I am stronger in defence now, I go into challenges with more determination and control the game. The Premier League has forced me to develop different skills.

“[Italy coach] Roberto Mancini is putting his faith in me for the Nazionale and I am trying to prove on the field that I deserve that.

“I think more than anything I just have the characteristics to suit his idea of football.

“I’d love to score a goal [against Finland on Sunday], but I’d be even happier if we came away with three points.”
