Chelsea midfielder Jorginho is ready to leave the club less than a year after moving to Stamford Bridge in order to reunite with Maurizio Sarri at Juventus.
The Italy international left Napoli for Chelsea last summer window to join Sarri in London but underwhelmed in his debut campaign after a £52million move.
Sarri’s exit was confirmed by Chelsea last week and the Italian touched down in Italy last night ahead of his official announcement as Juventus manager.
And, according to the Mirror, Jorginho is keen on returning to Italy and believes that Sarri will prioritise a move for him this summer window.
Jorginho’s agent, Joao Santos, concedes his client would be interested in a reunion and insists his past with Napoli would not affect a move to Juventus.
‘Chelsea have a four-year contract with the lad,’ Santos told Tuttomercatoweb.
‘We’ll wait a few days to figure out whether there is any truth in this interest mentioned in the papers.
‘His past at Napoli won’t be an issue, because Jorginho is a professional. Right now, Jorginho is happy at Chelsea.
‘He found a great atmosphere and we can’t really say that he’d like to go elsewhere, but anything can happen in the transfer market. We’ll wait and see.’
Jorginho’s future could be an early problem for Chelsea legend Frank Lampard, who is set to take over at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues are under a contract ban and therefore could not sign a replacement for the Italian.
Chelsea have already lost Eden Hazard to Real Madrid, while Barcelona and Atletico Madrid are interested in Willian.
