Chelsea midfielder Jorginho moved to Stamford Bridge along with Maurizio Sarri last season, as the Italian boss brought him from Napoli.

Sarri brought Jorginho to Chelsea during his time as Chelsea boss, having worked with Jorginho at Napoli and reports now claim that he is keen on taking Jorginho to Juventus.

However, Jorginho’s agent Joao Santos has denied such reports.

When asked about a rumoured move to Juventus, Santos told Calciomercato: “I read that, but I never had contact with them.

“Neither Sarri, nor [Juventus’ chief football officer] Fabio Paratici called me to have information on Jorginho.

“As of today, I know absolutely nothing about this situation. The lad is very happy in London, where he is proving his worth and still has three years left on his contract.

“In fact, in July there’s the possibility we can start talks to add a fourth and extend his contract with Chelsea.

“I don’t know what Juve’s transfer strategy is, but these are our plans for the future.”
