Jorginho’s agent reiterates he could leave Chelsea in July and “would not say no to Juventus,” but he’d listen to offers from Italy, France and England.
The former Napoli midfielder had followed Maurizio Sarri to Stamford Bridge and remained under Frank Lampard, winning over the doubtful local fans.
“Anything can happen in the transfer market. I said ‘why not?’ to Juventus because Jorginho has a three-year contract with Chelsea, so the priority is clearly to remain there, but we could also evaluate leaving the club in July,” agent Joao Santos told TuttoJuve.com.
“In that case, if this were to happen, we’d be ready to consider the various proposals that will arrive from Italy, France and England.
“Why shouldn’t it be possible to join Juventus? They are the most important club in Italy, the one that has won the most in recent years. We wouldn’t say no to the Bianconeri.”
Sarri’s arrival on the Juventus bench sparked speculation around a Jorginho move almost immediately.
“It’s natural, because Sarri was Jorginho’s coach at both Napoli and Chelsea,” continued the representative.
“The player was fundamental in his tactics over the last four years, knows the system inside out and that is why there are these rumours.
“If Juventus, who already have a very strong squad, were to need him and Chelsea were ready to sell, we would certainly evaluate their proposal. It’d then be up to the clubs to reach an agreement.
“Nobody from Juve, not now or in the past, have contacted me to talk about Jorginho. The club would need to speak to Chelsea first, as talking to me won’t change the situation very much.
