Juventus want Chelsea star in exchange for Miralem Pjanic

Juventus want Jorginho in swap deal for Pjanic

Chelsea could get their hands on Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic this summer, provided they allow Jorginho move in the opposite direction.

A recent report from Tuttosport claimed that the Blues hold an interest in Pjanic and he could be prised away from the Italian champions for around £55m.

However, it is understood that the Bianconeri won't part ways with the Bosnian without a replacement and Italian network 7 Gold claims they are keen on signing Jorginho in a straight-swap deal.

Jorginho was linked with a reunion with Maurizio Sarri in Turin following the manager's departure from Chelsea last summer and it appears that the Bianconeri could come up with a formal approach for his services this time around.

Chelsea are apparently planning a £200m spending spree for the summer. Apart from Pjanic, they have been credited with an interest in Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez and AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.

The Blues have already bolstered their attack for next season with the signing of Hakim Ziyech from Ajax but further reinforcements are required with both Pedro and Willian set to leave for free when their contracts expire this summer.
