Jorginho could reunite with Sarri at Juventus, claims Agent

The representative of Jorginho has acknowledged that Maurizio Sarri could seek a reunion with the Chelsea midfielder during this summer’s transfer window. The Italian tactician recently parted ways with the Blues to return to the Serie A with Juventus and Jorginho has been fancied to head in the same direction owing to the close association with the manager.

Speaking to Sport Mediaset, Jorginho’s agent revealed that Sarri requires a player of the midfielder’s attribute at the Bianconeri and a reunion could be on the cards this summer. He added that the Italian giants have yet to make an approach but even then, they would have to first find a breakthrough with the Blues before discussing terms for the midfielder, he said: "He needs a player like Jorginho to play as he wants. I don't know Juventus' strategies, we'll see. I know Sarri has just joined Juventus. Paraticiwill decide what to do. I imagine they are talking about transfer targets. Juventus' director won't call us without calling Chelsea first."

Chelsea are currently under a transfer ban for the next year and under the present situation, it appears unlikely that they would consider any offers for the Italy international. The west London side are without a head coach at the moment but they are expected to sort the same before the end of the month.

Club legend Frank Lampard has been earmarked as the outright favourite for the job and the Blues are deemed to be negotiating a compensation package with Derby County for the Englishman. Meanwhile, the Blues are looking into a permanent move for midfielder Mateo Kovacic after the Croat impressed on loan from Real Madrid last term.

The Capital outfit are not permitted to register any new recruits during the transfer ban but they can, however, make Kovacic’s move permanent, considering he has already been designated as a Blues player for the 2018/19 campaign.
