Chelsea have reportedly set an asking price of £60m for midfielder Jorginho, who has been linked with a possible move to Juventus.

Bianconeri boss Maurizio Sarri has previously worked with Jorginho at both Napoli and the Blues and he is said to be keen on another reunion.

A swap deal involving Miralem Pjanic was suggested earlier in the month but it appears that the Bosnian is on his way to Barcelona in a part-exchange deal for Nelson Semedo.

According to Tuttosport, the Blues don't have an interest in signing any other player from the Serie A champions and they would prefer a straight-cash deal for Jorginho's sale.

Still, they are unlikely to accept a reduced fee under the current financial climate and will demand at least £60m from the Bianconeri to part ways with the Italian.

Jorginho has made close to 100 appearances for the west London giants since his move from Napoli in 2018. He has recently insisted that he is very happy at the club and has no plans to pursue a fresh challenge.
