Jorginho set for Sarri reunion?

Maurizio Sarri could lure Chelsea midfielder Jorginho back to Napoli, should he take over the managerial reins this summer.

Sarri was Napoli's head coach between June 2015 and May 2018 and it is claimed that he could return to the dugout.

According to Rai Sport, Sarri has held talks with chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis over replacing Gennaro Gattuso at the helm.

It is added that Sarri's main transfer priority will be Jorginho, having previously worked together at the Serie A side and Chelsea.

It remains to be seen whether the Blues will consider his departure, considering he has been a regular under manager Thomas Tuchel.

Jorginho was previously linked with a possible reunion with Sarri at Juventus in 2019, but a deal never materialised.

His agent has talked about the possibility of him returning to Naples and only time will tell where the midfielder's future will lie.

Jorginho has made 125 appearances for the Blues in all competitions, registering 16 goals and three assists.
