The agent of Chelsea midfielder, Jorginho, has continued to talk up a move away from Stamford Bridge for his client.
The Italian international joined the Blues from Napoli during the summer of 2018 to unite with boss Maurizio Sarri. The Italian coach is now of course in charge at Juventus.
Joao Santos spoke to Tuttosport (via Daily Star) about his feelings towards the midfielders future. He said:
“Anything can happen inside the transfer market. Jorginho has a three-year contract with Chelsea the priority is clearly to stay here, but we could also consider leaving the club in July”
“And if this hypothesis occurs, we would be ready to evaluate the different proposals that will come from Italy, France, England. Why should Juventus not be possible?”
He elaborated further on the Juve link, by saying:
“It is the most important team in Italy, the one that has won the most in recent years. We would not say no to the Bianconeri”
Chelsea fans will have mixed feelings about letting Jorginho go. The 27-year-old struggled last season, but has improved under Frank Lampard. The Italian has formed a good partnership with Mateo Kovacic, helping the Blues to a top-four place, and the last-sixteen of the champions league.
The Blues are likely to have a busy summer. Frank Lampard will no doubt want to make up forJanuary window seeing no new additions. It’s already likely that Pedro and Willian will leave, and There’s likely to be others as the Chelsea legend builds a new squad.
