Jorginho’s agent has warned Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia that the midfielder is attracting interest from rival clubs.
Jorginho’s current deal with Chelsea expires in 2023 and the midfielder’s agent, Joao Santos, is keen to negotiate a new contract with the Blues.
“Today, Jorginho’s valuation is around €50 million (£42.8m). If a team arrives… obviously he has made it to many finals,” Santos told Radio Marte.
Asked if he had been approached by another club looking to sign Jorginho, Santos replied: “Yes, but our first thought is to speak to Marina Granovskaia about the renewal.
“This is certainly a very important moment in his career, he has been waiting for it for 20 years.”
Meanwhile, former Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has hailed Jorginho as an intelligent player.
“He is a refined player, probably not understood by everyone,” said Sarri.
“You have to set your eyes on him and only watch him in the game. He is so good and intelligent that he makes everything seem easy, rarely anything spectacular remains in your eyes. This is its greatness.”
