Juventus were expected to submit a bid for Jorginho this summer but that is no longer expected to happen following the sacking of Maurizio Sarri.

Reports claim that Chelsea boss Frank Lampard may not be counting on Jorginho for next season, with the 28-year-old being linked with a return to the Serie A.

Jorginho’s agent Joao Santos has insisted that his client is still a Chelsea player and nothing has changed so far.

“He has a three-year deal with Chelsea,” Jorginho’s agent Joao Santos told Tuttomercatoweb. “The market is long, it will last until October 5.

“If Chelsea were to think that he is no longer part of the project, I would find an alternative solution. Last year he played 40 games for Chelsea and is an important member of the national team.

“So far we haven’t received any official offers. He is followed by many clubs and there aren’t many players with his characteristics in that role.”

Having started out as a key player for Frank Lampard, Jorginho fell down the pecking order following the restart of last season, which brought doubts about his future at the club.
