Maurizio Sarri was at Chelsea for a year and in his first Blues transfer window in 2018, he helped them sign Jorginho.

The midfielder followed his manager from Napoli to Stamford Bridge and after Sarri joined Juventus in 2019, he was keen on bringing the player to the Turin club. However, a deal didn’t take shape and the 30-year-old is still with the Premier League side.

Massimiliano Allegri is now in charge of the Old Lady and he is an admirer of the Brazil-born Italy international.

Journalist Enzo Bucchioni, writing in his column for TuttoMercatoWeb, says the Serie A side’s coach wants Juve to get him a new midfielder next summer.

Jorginho has been identified as a target.

In order to fulfil their coach’s request, Juventus ‘will do everything to bring’ the ex-Napoli man back to Italy.

Bucchioni says the Blues star ‘would be that mix of technique, personality and experience, the ability to lead the team, missing from the days of Pjanic. Perhaps from Pirlo’.

Jorginho’s contract at Chelsea expires in 2023 and last August, his agent admitted the player could return to the Serie A in the future. A month ago, the representative stressed there has been “no talk of renewal” with Thomas Tuchel’s side.

As things stand, Jorginho will have a year left on his contract after this season.
