As reports have previously claimed, Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri is keen on signing Chelsea midfielder Jorginho, and is ready to go as far as offering Miralem Pjanic in a swap deal.
Jorginho is an integral part of Sarri’s famous football style called Sarri-ball, and it was the Italian who was responsible for bringing him to Chelsea from Napoli.
According to a latest tweet from Italian insider Nicolo Schira, Chelsea are determined to not sell Jorginho but Juventus are trying to use wantaway star Miralem Pjanic in a swap deal to tempt the Blues into selling their vice-captain in the summer window. His report also claims that Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich are keen on signing Jorginho as well.
Meanwhile, Jorginho’s agent, Joao Santos, Chelsea could sell the midfielder this summer if the club receive a big enough offer.
“If you ask me if Sarri likes Jorginho, I’d say ‘yes’ due to their history,” Santos told Radio Musica Television via Football Italia.
“I can’t say anything about the transfer market as I’m not in touch with anyone right now.
“Jorginho still has three years left on his contract and is doing well at Chelsea, but if a big-enough offer comes in then a deal could go through.
“In this sense, two top European clubs, not Italian ones, contacted me.”
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is already grooming Billy Gilmour, and the Blues youngster proved in the last couple of games before the lockdown, that he can indeed play the Jorginho role.
