Report: Juventus Still Interested In Blues Italian Midfielder Jorghino

The Italian giants have confirmed that they are still interested in trying to bring Chelsea's penalty specialist Jorghino to the Allianz stadium. 

Currently, Chelsea has not decided to include the Italian in a swap deal as they pursue the signing of Matthijs De Ligt. With the Blues already offering Timo Werner and Christian Pulisic, it seems like Chelsea is holding out to receive cash for Jorginho.

Chelsea will look to pay around £60-65 million for the Dutch defender with Juventus asking for around £70-75 million. According to Ben Jacobs, add-ons will play a massive part in this deal. 

The 30-year-old only has one year left on his current contract and would be at risk of leaving Chelsea on a free transfer next summer after spending the last four years at Stamford Bridge. 

The Italian midfielder has seen a lot of success in recent years by playing vital roles in Chelsea's Champions League victory and Italy's European triumph back in 2021. This saw Jorghino place third in the Ballon D'Or rankings later that year.
