Juventus has reportedly offered their pick of three players to Chelsea as the Italians prepare to reunite with midfielder Jorginho boss Maurizio Sarri.
The Brazilian has previously worked at both Napoli and Stamford Bridge under Sarri, as well as last season. And, according to the Sunday Express (via Sport), the Serie A giants are doing their utmost to bring players and boss together for the third time.
The Old Lady tried to include Miralem Pjanić in the deal with Chelsea, but the international from Bosnia and Herzegovina was preparing to transfer to Barcelona with her heart. Now Sport reports that Juve, with former Bayern Munich winger Douglas Costa on the list, is ready to offload one of three other stars.
Joao Santos, Jorginho ‘s partner, was more than willing to discuss the prospect of the 28-year-old transferring to Turin last week.
Santos said in an interview with Naples station Radio Kiss Kiss: “I read through newspapers and various outlets about the connections with Juve. I repeat: Juventus is one of the best football clubs.
In July 2018 Jorginho joined Chelsea from Naples for a nominal £ 50 m fee.
In recent weeks, Maurizio Sarri has been strongly linked to a meeting with Jorginho, whom he signed for the Blues during his one year stint on the Stamford Bridge.
While Frank Lampard sees the 28-year-old as an important player, it remains unclear whether the emergence of Billy Gilmour could encourage officials from the club to cash in on the Italy international.
Nevertheless, according to Sport, Juventus would like to include one of its out-of-favor team leaders in any plan.
