Juventus and former Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri are reportedly eyeing a move for Jorginho in the next transfer window.

The midfielder formerly played under Sarri at Napoli before following him to Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2018.

The Italy international has been linked with a return to Serie A since last summer when Sarri took over in Turin, but stayed in the Premier League and has had a successful season under Frank Lampard.

Jorginho’s agent spoke in February about a possible move, insisting that while his priority is to stay in West London, they would consider an offer from the Serie A giants should one arrive.

And if they do decide to make a move, reports in Italy suggest they will try to sweeten a deal for Chelsea by including Miralem Pjanic as a replacement.

Coutinho transfer message

Former Barcelona star Rivaldo has urged Philippe Coutinho to snub interest from Chelsea this summer and fight for his place in Spain.

The Brazilian international is currently on loan at Bayern Munich from the Catalan giants, having failed to really make an impression in La Liga.

This season, the 27-year-old has netted eight Bundesliga goals and notched another six assists. However, with just 15 league starts he has struggled to get a regular spot.

The Blues have been linked with a move away from Barcelona once again for the 2020/21 season, with a potential season on loan at Stamford Bridge.

But Rivaldo believes Coutinho should snub any move away and look to see out his contract until 2023 at the Camp Nou.
