Chelsea midfielder Jorginho will “always” have a “desire” to return to Serie A, according to his agent Joao Santos.

Jorginho was widely criticised under Maurizio Sarri last season but his fine displays this season are beginning to win over the fans.

Frank Lampard recently praised the £52million man, who joined from Napoli in the summer of 2018, believing he is key to the Blues on the pitch, as well as being an important presence behind the scenes.

However, Jorginho‘s agent has thrown the Italy international’s long-term future at Chelsea into doubt by discussing his “desire” to make the move back to Italy.

“Anything is possible in football, he will always have the desire to come back,” Santos told Radio Sportiva.

“He acquired valuable experience in the Premier League and he would give a big contribution in Serie A. He could play for two or three sides that fight for the title.”

Santos added: “It’s been a positive year for him [Jorginho]. He’s doing well in the national team and can play the Euros. He always scores from a penalty, I’m very happy for him as he works hard and seriously every day.

“His debut with [former Italy boss Giampiero] Ventura surely wasn’t positive, but he slowly secured a spot in the starting eleven.

“Playing at Chelsea counts for a lot, it’s a very intense type of football and he learned a lot with Sarri and Lampard.

“I think Jorginho will do very well in the Euros and why not, in the following World Cup as well. Besides, there are not many chances in the national team and you need to be ready to star in each game.”
