This year has been a highly successful one so far for Jorginho, who played a key part in Chelsea’s Champions League triumph before winning Euro 2020 with Italy earlier this month.
The midfielder only has two years remaining on his current Blues contract, but Fabrizio Romano claims talks are underway over a potential extension.
Romano revealed on his Here We Go podcast that Stamford Bridge officials are desperate for Jorginho to stay beyond 2023, although he admits an extension will “take some time”.

Emerson submits transfer request
According to Italian outlet Calciomercato, Emerson Palmieri has handed in a transfer request at Chelsea amid interest from clubs in Serie A.
Emerson fell out of favour in west London when Tuchel replaced Lampard, with the new boss instead preferring to deploy either Ben Chilwell or Marcos Alonso at left wing-back.
