According to Italian media publication Gazzetta dello Sport, Maurizio Sarri’s Juventus are offering Federico Bernardeschi in exchange for Chelsea midfielder Jorginho.

Sarri is keen to be reunited with Jorginho at Juventus, having worked with the Italian international at Napoli and Chelsea.

Jorginho, who signed for Chelsea in £57million deal, initially struggled to adapt to the Premier League in his first season under Sarri but has impressed this season under Frank Lampard.

Jorginho has scored seven goals and registered two assists in 37 competitive games for Chelsea this season.

With the Italian international an important player under Lampard, it remains to be seen whether the Blues would give up Jorginho for Bernardeschi.

The Blues have reportedly identified Juventus winger Bernardeschi as an alternative for Jadon Sancho and Juventus are now tempting the Blues by offering the Italian winger to Chelsea.

Jorginho’s agent Joao Santos recently admitted that they would listen if an important club in Italy calls.

Santos told Tuttomercatoweb: “I don’t know whether Juve want Jorginho or not, as he has three years left on his Chelsea contract. We’ll see… he is a professional, so if an important club in Italy calls, then why not?”
