The agent of Chelsea midfielder Jorginho has confirmed the Italian could leave Stamford Bridge in order to reunite with former Blues boss Maurizio Sarri.

Jorginho followed Sarri to Stamford Bridge in 2018, signing from Napoli in a £52million transfer.

The Italy international was heavily linked with a move to Juventus in 2019 but Sarri was sacked last summer by the Old Lady and was replaced by Andrea Pirlo.

Jorginho was keen to move to Turin but his respect for Sarri remains strong and the Italian is expected to return to Serie A management soon given he’s one of the biggest names on the market.

And the Italian midfielder’s agent has confirmed Jorginho could have joined Juve had Sarri stayed in charge and he will consider following the Italian coach to his next club.

‘He’s very happy with Frank Lampard and Chelsea can do even better than last season,’ agent Joao Santos told Calciomercato.

‘Almost all the Italy players are in Serie A, as it’s an important league, but his journey took him to London. If Maurizio Sarri had remained, perhaps he’d have joined Juventus.

‘Jorginho has a personal and professional bond with the coach that is very strong. We’re waiting to see where Sarri goes, and if it’s a big club in Italy, Jorginho could follow him.’

Jorginho is a first-team regular again under Lampard, scoring three times in ten appearances this term.

He’s expected to start as the Blues travel to the north-east on Saturday to take on Newcastle.

Lampard has an injury concern over Ben Chilwell after the defender was forced out of England’s defeat against Belgium with a back spasm.
