Chelsea are making all the headlines when it comes to summer transfers.

Hakim Ziyech was a confirmed summer signing soon after the January transfer window closed, with the Blues keen to get their business done early.

Chelsea have been linked with a number of other players, namely Bayer Leverkusen ace Kai Havertz and Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell.

One of those that could be sold is Jorginho, who has not been featuring under Lampard since the Premier League restarted.

Lampard was asked about the Italian during his pre-match press conference ahead of the game with Crystal Palace, saying: “He has been very professional about it.

“But he has handled it professionally and that’s what I would expect. It is important for players in a long season, with the competitive squad that we have, that they are there to support players when they are out, and he has done that. So we will see with my selection tomorrow.”

Maurizio Sarri brought Jorginho to Stamford Bridge at the start of last season and he is reported to be keen on linking up with the midfielder once more at Juventus.

Juve have been linked with a €50million (£45million) move to sign Jorginho and that would go some way to paying for…
