Juventus enter talks with Chelsea for Jorginho
The upcoming summer will see Juventus improving their midfield department.
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Juventus have entered talks with Chelsea for Jorginho.
The 28-year-old’s contract at Chelsea is set to expire at the end of the 2022/23 campaign.
This season, Jorginho has scored 7 goals and provided 2 assists in 37 appearances for Chelsea.
The 28-year-old is considered to be one of the best midfielders in Italy. As a member of Italy national football team, Jorginho won 22 caps and he scored 4 goals.
The Italy international is believed to be available for transfer, with Maurizio Sarri now keen to bring him to Juventus.
The 28-year-old is thought to perfectly fit the profile of midfielder Sarri wants to target in the summer transfer window.
Maurizio Sarri will reportedly be handed a huge transfer kitty this summer and the Chelsea midfielder is thought to be among the manager’s priorities.
According to the report, “Juventus are moving for Chelsea midfielder Jorginho. The National says Juventus have entered talks with Chelsea over a deal to sign Jorginho, which would see the midfielder reunite with Maurizio Sarri for a third time. Jorginho was brought to Stamford Bridge by Sarri in a £57m deal from Napoli and has played a key part for the Blues, scoring six goals in 63 appearances. The 28-year-old recently revealed he wanted to leave the club after being targeted for criticism by the club’s fans before eventually winning them over. Juve are hoping to take advantage of his recent admission with a €40 million (£34.8m) offer, although the west London club are likely to demand a fee closer to the amount they paid two years ago.”

Chelsea are preparing to sell their midfielder should they receive a massive offer for him.
Nevertheless, Jorginho stands as an excellent option for Juventus.
The Italy international will definitely be a good addition to the Juventus side, which will be competing in the Champions League next season.
How strong that interest is and whether Juventus will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
