Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has not given any minutes to Jorginho since the Premier League restarted last month.
It’s no surprise this has seen an increase in the number of reports linking the midfielder with a move away from Stamford Bridge.
On June 2nd, Area Napoli explained the Brazil-born Italy international is ‘willing to leave’ the Blues and Juventus are on his track.
According to Calciomercato, the 28-year-old is ‘no longer a first choice’ at Chelsea and the Turin club ‘think seriously’ about him.
It’s claimed the Old Lady have been following the player ‘for some time’ and Juve CFO Fabio Paratici is studying a strategy to sign Lampard’s man to ‘satisfy’ Maurizio Sarri, as the Italian coach wants his former player to replace Miralem Pjanić.
Chelsea have slapped a €50m valuation and this is deemed too high by the Serie A side.
The website adds there’s a lot of time to conclude the deal because Jorginho’s asking price can drop further [due to Covid-19] and Juve could please the English club by including either Douglas Costa, Federico Bernardeschi or Alex Sandro as a part of the deal.
With the European championship delayed until next summer, Jorginho wants to play regularly next season, to feel like a ‘protagonist,’ and Juve would be a ‘welcome solution’ for him.
