Jorginho’s agent claims two top non-Italian clubs have contacted him over Chelsea star


Jorginho’s Chelsea stint

Jorginho joined Chelsea in the summer of 2018, for a fee believed to be in the region of £57m.

Since making the move to England, the Italian has endured something of a mixed stint.

The 2018/19 campaign was especially difficult for Jorginho.

Maurizio Sarri, Chelsea boss at the time, brought Jorginho to Stamford Bridge from previous club Napoli.

And with Sarri having opted to oust N’Golo Kante from the base of Chelsea’s midfield, before replacing him with Jorginho, the former Napoli man, in many ways, became synonymously linked with Sarri and his controversial‘ Sarri-ball’.

Jorginho, at one point, was even forced to go on record to state that he was not Sarri’s golden boy.

However, despite his rough start to life in the Premier League, the Italian international has since gone on to cement himself as an essential figure in Chelsea’s midfield.

It is quite clear that Jorginho has benefitted from finally stepping out from Sarri’s shadow, and the 28-year-old has also seemingly begun to adapt to the physicality of the English game.

Jorginho’s agent speaks out

All told, Jorginho has notched 37 appearances across all competitions this term, netting seven and assisting two in the process.

Despite his upturn in form, though, the former Verona standout has still been fairly heavily linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge in recent months.

The most common link, unsurprisingly, has been Jorginho potentially moving to Juventus, where Maurizio Sarri is now at the helm.

However, as mentioned above, if recent comments on the part of Jorginho’s agent are to be believed, then it is not just Juve who are interested in the deep-lying midfielder’s services.

Speaking to Radio Musica Television, Jorginho’s agent claimed that two top European clubs, not from Italy, have contacted him over his client’s availability:

“If you ask me if Sarri likes Jorginho, I’d say ‘yes’ due to their history.

“I can’t say anything about the transfer market as I’m not in touch with anyone right now.

“Jorginho still has three years left on his contract and is doing well at Chelsea, but if a big enough offer comes in then a deal could go through.

“In this sense, two top European clubs, not Italian ones, contacted me.”
