Jorginho offers update on Chelsea situation amid Juventus transfer interest

Chelsea midfielder Jorginho insists that he is “very happy” with the Premier League side after he was linked with a move to Juventus.

Jorginho was brought to west London by new boss Maurizio Sari in July 2018 shortly after he arrived himself for a handsome sum of £50m, having worked together at Napoli.

Of course, Sarri jumped ship at the end of his first season at Stamford Bridge, replacing Massimiliano Allegri at Juventus.

Jorginho did not follow him this time around though, actually improving at Chelsea under new boss Frank Lampard.

But the Italian pair could be set for a reunion in Turin, with recent reports suggesting that Sarri is keen to bring back an old favourite.

“I’m very happy here at Chelsea. Last year I only spoke in Italian, but this year I have improved my English,” said Jorginho (as quoted by Juve News).

That’s not to say he doesn’t miss Italy though.

The Brazilian-born Italy international also revealed his favourite moment in a Chelsea shirt – and it’s hardly a surprise.

“That is certainly linked to the victory of the Europa League last season,” he answered, referring to the Europa League final win over Arsenal last May in Baku.
