The representative of Chelsea midfielder Jorginho has hinted that his client could prefer a move to Juventus at the end of the season.

Jorginho was reunited with Maurizio Sarri when the Italian was appointed as the Blues manager in 2018 but their association lasted for only 12 months before the 61-year-old returned to the Serie A with the Bianconeri.

There has since been the speculation that the midfielder may want to work again with his former Napoli boss and agent Joao Santos has offered some encouragement by saying that any player would like to play for them.

“Juventus are one of the top teams in Europe and any player would like to play for them. I haven’t heard from [sporting director Fabio] Paratici, he hasn’t called me,” he told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli.

The Bianconeri have yet to make a formal approach to sign the former Hellas Verona man but reports claim that the potential departure of Miralem Pjanic could pave the way for an approach.

Pjanic looks on his way out of the Bianconeri after three years and he has been widely fancied to make the switch to Barcelona in a potential swap deal for Nelson Semedo.
