July 12th, 2021 by Olasunkanmi Ibikunle

Agent Joao Santos said Juventus have asked about Chelsea midfielder Jorginho. ‘It’s all in the hands of the club, he has a two-year contract’.

The Brazilian-born Italy midfielder helped the Blues lift the Champions League in 2020-21, before playing every game for the Azzurri, who triumphed at the Euros this summer.

Jorginho was a key member in both sides and the former Napoli star has been linked with a return to Serie A and the Bianconeri ever since Maurizio Sarri left London in the summer of 2019.

“He has a two-year contract,” Joao Santos told as cited by Football Italia.

“And it’s all in the hands of the club.

“There the Club World Cup, there’s the European Super Cup. For a footballer, these are important targets.

“But the transfer market is always the transfer market and if a major club comes forward with a serious offer to Chelsea, then we will evaluate.

“At the moment, Jorginho will play at Chelsea next season.”

Joao Santos confirmed Jorginho has been targeted by Juventus and other big clubs, including interest from Spain.

“I can confirm it, these interests have arrived. Of course, at 29, he can do very well in all the top European clubs, and many are interested in him.

“However, I want to close by saying that I’m happy all Italians can breathe the air of champions today.”

Jorginho, Emerson Palmieri and Rafael Toloi were three Brazilian-born Italy players in Roberto Mancini’s EURO 2020 squad.

“Jorginho is an example of true integration,” his agent continued. “Blood is not involved, he sees Italy as his homeland.

“In Italy he sees immeasurable feelings. He feels Italian even though he was born in Brazil: everyone should learn from such a strong feeling.”
