Sarri’s departure has brought about the rise in rumours and speculations on Jorginho’s move to Turin, his agent Joao Santos developed a diplomatic statement saying his client is very happy at Chelsea but won’t turn down interest from other clubs.

“Chelsea has a four-year contract with the lad,” Santos told Tuttomercatoweb. “We’ll wait a few days to figure out whether there is any truth in this interest mentioned in the papers.

“His past at Napoli won’t be an issue, because Jorginho is a professional. Right now, Jorginho is happy at Chelsea. He found a great atmosphere and we can’t really say that he’d like to go elsewhere, but anything can happen in the transfer market. We’ll wait and see.”

Jorginho had a long season at Chelsea filled with criticism, Chelsea finished the season third in the EPL, won the Europa league title but both he and Sarri are still heavily criticized.
