Chelsea open to selling midfielder to Juventus?

Chelsea considering Jorginho sale

Chelsea are reportedly considering the prospect of selling midfielder Jorginho amid the transfer interest from Juventus.

The Italy international is currently in his second season with the Blues and he has been a regular starter in the centre of the park under manager Frank Lampard.

According to The Express, Bianconeri boss Maurizio Sarri is keen on a reunion with Jorginho, having previously worked with him at Chelsea and Napoli.

The same publication cites that the club have held negotiations with the player's representative and they are likely to make a bid of around £35m to land the Italian's signature.

The Blues purchased Jorginho from Napoli for more than £50m two years ago but they are unlikely to command a similar figure with the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

Jorginho is not pushing for a departure at the moment but reports claim that the Blues are considering the option following the emergence of Billy Gilmour in their ranks.
