Jorginho's agent says midfielder could leave Chelsea

The agent of Jorginho has hinted that the midfielder could seek a possible move away from Chelsea when the transfer window reopens in the summer.

The Italy international has been with the Blues since the summer of 2018 and he has made nearly 90 appearances for the club in all competitions.

Under Frank Lampard, Jorginho has remained an influential player in the centre of the park but agent Joao Santos has hinted that his client may consider a fresh challenge elsewhere.

"Why not? I am sure that some important proposals will come, which we would obviously evaluate together with Chelsea," he was quoted as saying by Tuttomercatoweb.

Jorginho was linked with a reunion with Maurizio Sarri at Juventus last summer but the move did not materialise with the Blues being under a transfer ban while the midfielder himself was content to stay.

The Bianconeri are said to be keen on signing a new central midfielder in the summer and they have allegedly earmarked Paul Pogba as their prime target. Jorginho may emerge as a possible alternative.
