Reports earlier this month have claimed that Juventus are keen on signing Chelsea midfielder Jorginho, and the Old Lady are even ready to offer Miralem Pjanic to Chelsea as part of a swap deal.

Sarri is believed to be missing a Jorginho kind of player in the Juve team, and Jorginho is always central to his Sarri-ball system which hasn’t clicked perfectly in Turin.

According to claims from Spanish newspaper Sport, Pjanic isn’t interested in move to Chelsea and would rather sign with Barcelona. The report adds that Chelsea have been offered a pick of three players by Juventus in order to convince Chelsea to part with Jorginho.

Douglas Costa, Adrien Rabiot and Federico Bernardeschi are the three players offered to Chelsea, of which the Blues can pick only one.

Meanwhile, Jorginho’s agent has hailed the quality of Juventus while also revealing that Jorginho is happy at Stamford Bridge.

“Juve are one of the top clubs in Europe, all players would like an experience there,” Joao Santos told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli.

“But I didn’t hear from anyone, [Fabio] Paratici hasn’t call me.

“Jorginho is currently a Chelsea player, has a three-year contract and is doing well in London.

When asked about a possible reunion with Sarri, Santos replied: “I repeat… Juve are a great club, among the best in Europe.”
