According to Jorginho’s agent, Chelsea are willing to sell the Italian international for €50million this summer.

Jorginho dropped down the pecking order under former boss Frank Lampard but has become a key player under Thomas Tuchel.

Jorginho has two years left on his current contract but this week he spoke of his desire to one day return to Napoli.

Jorginho’s agent, Joao Santos, expects Chelsea to offer Jorginho a new contract but claims the Blues are willing to sell the 29 year old for €50million.

Santos told Radio Kiss Kiss: “Jorginho would like to come back to Italy, and there is the desire to play in Serie A.

“If Napoli should need Jorginho, then it could happen. He still has two years left on his contract at Chelsea. As things stand today, his price-tag is €50m and he has quite high wages in London. It’s unlikely that (Napoli President Aurelio) De Laurentiis would spend so much.

“Besides, in my view, Marina Granovskaia and Chelsea will offer him a contract renewal over the next few months.”
