Chelsea midfielder Jorginho is set to quit the club less than 12 months after moving to Stamford Bridge in order to reunite with Maurizio Sarri at Juventus.
The Italy international left Napoli for Chelsea last summer to join Sarri in west London but underwhelmed in his debut campaign following a £52million move.
Sarri’s departure was confirmed by Chelsea last week and the Italian touched down in Turin last night ahead of his official announcement as Juventus boss.
According to the Mirror, Jorginho is keen on returning to Italy and is confident that Sarri will prioritise a move for him this summer.
Jorginho’s agent, Joao Santos, admits his client would be open to a reunion and insists his past with Napoli would not impact 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.’
