Cape Town - Jorginho's agent has revealed that there is a possibility the Chelsea midfielder will reunite with Maurizio Sarri at Juventus.
The 28-year-old has often been linked with a return to Italy even
though he continues to play a key role as a defensive midfielder for the
Blues under current boss Frank Lampard.
Jorginho, who moved to Stamford Bridge in a £58 million deal from
Napoli in summer 2018, is believed to be a target for Sarri at Juve
after he first brought him to London.
It appears the Italy international is a favourite of Sarri after
working together at the Partenopei and reports suggest the pair could be
reunited next season.
Jorginho is under contract at Chelsea until 2023 so it would take a
big offer from Juve to prise him away but his agent, Joao Santos, has
refused to rule out a move to the Turin giants and expects offers for
his client when the transfer window reopens.
When asked about the possibility of a summer transfer to the Serie A
champions, Santos told Tuttomercatoweb: "Why not? His goal is the
Europeans (Euro 2020) with the national team. There are many
expectations I am sure that some important proposals will come, which we
would obviously evaluate together with Chelsea."
Jorginho has made 23 Premier League appearances so far this season,
scoring four goals and he has a further two assists to his name to
underline his influence in the middle of the park. Santos has talked up
his role in the Blues side and suggests other clubs are continuing to
monitor his progress.
He added: "He is doing very well at Chelsea, and I am sure that some
important proposals will come because in his role, there are not many
high-level players like him around."
The midfielder is currently on a mid-season break with the rest of
the Chelsea first-team squad but will be back in action when they host
Manchester United on Monday, February 17.
