According to a report from The National, Juventus have opened talks with Chelsea regarding a €40 million (£35m/$43m) deal for midfielder Jorginho. This is not the first time that the 28-year-old has been liked with a move to the Italian club as he was tipped to follow Maurizio Sarri last year when the manager traded the Blues for Juventus.

During Sarri’s successful spell at Napoli. Jorginho was the main controller in his team as he established the side from Naples as one of the powerhouses in Italian football. The 61-year-old brought the midfielder with him to Chelsea, however, an inconsistent season saw Sarri leave the London side after just one season. Now the manager is once again looking to reunite with his former disciple as he looks to build his legacy at the most successful club in Italy.
