Barcelona keeping tabs on Chelsea midfielder
Barcelona are keeping a close eye on Chelsea midfielder Jorginho with his contract expiring next summer.
The Italian has been a mainstay for the Blues over the past six years, but there are doubts over his future next season.
New Blues boss Graham Potter picked him in the starting XI against RB Salzburg, but his long-term plans are unclear.
The west London giants are eyeing a marquee midfielder in January, and this could pave the way for Jorginho's departure.
Amidst this, it is reported that the Catalan giants are monitoring the Italian and view him as a successor to Sergio Busquets.
The 35-year-old's contract with the Blaugrana expires in June next year, and there are suggestions that he could leave for free.
Jorginho is being eyed as a replacement by manager Xavi Hernandez, provided he is available on a free transfer deal.
Barcelona have made a stellar start to the 2022/23 league campaign, and are currently top of the standings with 16 points.
