Chelsea to offer Jorginho for ex-Arsenal graduate?

Ismael Bennacer news

Bennacer to Chelsea?

Chelsea could reportedly offer Jorginho as a makeweight to sign Ismael Bennacer from AC Milan during the summer transfer window.

Jorginho barely featured for the Blues following the restart last month and he only made a start after the injuries to N'Golo Kante and Billy Gilmour.

The Italian has since remained a regular in the centre of the park, but it appears that the Blues could be open to replacing him when the campaign concludes.

Manchester City and Manchester United have been hotly linked with Milan's Bennacer in recent weeks, but Calciomercato claims that the Blues have entered the player's pursuit.

Frank Lampard believes the former Arsenal youngster would ideally suit the club's profile and a part-exchange deal is set to be proposed with Jorginho heading in the opposite direction. 

Bennacer, who has a contract with the Rossoneri until June 2024, is believed to be valued at £45m. Chelsea, on the other hand, are said to price Jorginho at £32m.
