Chelsea star Jorginho keen on Serie A return as agent explains transfer stance

Chelsea ace Jorginho is happy to stay at the Blues under Frank Lampard at present.

However, a return to Italy is on the cards for the former Napoli man, according to his agent Joao Santos.

Jorginho followed his favourite manager Maurizio Sarri to England, joining Chelsea in a £57m deal back in 2018.

But speculation has been rife that the Italian could depart Stamford Bridge as Lampard attempts to bring Declan Rice to the club from West Ham.

However, Santos has shutdown talk of an imminent exit, before admitting a Serie A return was on his client's mind in the future.

“It was a great year for Jorge, he did very well in the national team as well. Next year there will be the European Championship, where he hopes to do very well with Italy,” Santos said.

“As for Chelsea, they are not very well placed in the table now, but being a young team, it takes time.

“Jorge is a Chelsea player and he is very happy there, but I wouldn’t rule out a return to Italy in future."

Jorginho was heavily linked with a move away from Chelsea in the summer, with Arsenal and PSG touted as potential destinations.

However, speaking back in September, Santos played down talk of a move to either club.

“Jorginho still has a three-year contract with Chelsea, this one plus two more," he said.

"I heard a lot about Arsenal and PSG in the last few days, but the reality is that so far no official offer has arrived for the player.

“The market closes on October 5th, but the more time passes the more difficult it becomes to make such an important operation.

"At the moment, therefore, I can say that it is only rumours.

“He is happy at Chelsea, he started the season well and being the vice captain at the moment…”
