The 29-year-old joined Chelsea in 2018 from Napoli for £50m plus add-ons.

Jorginho shone for the Blues in 2020/21 as he helped them beat Manchester City in the final of the Champions League.

The midfielder has also enjoyed a stellar summer with Italy at the European Championships. He missed a penalty in the shootout against England in the final but he impressed as Roberto Mancini’s side beat the Three Lions.

Now the player’s agent – Joao Santos – has confirmed (via Italian outlet Calciomercato) that Juventus are showing interest in the Chelsea star.

Santos admitted that they will “evaluate” if bids come in for Jorginho:

“He has a two-year contract and it’s all in the hands of the club. There is the World Club Championship, there is the European Super Cup. For a footballer, these are important goals.

“But, the transfer market is always the transfer market and if a major club comes forward seriously with Chelsea then we will evaluate. At the moment, Jorginho will play it at Chelsea next season”

Santos went onto add that “many are interested” in Jorginho after he lifted the Euro 2020 trophy:

“I confirm it, these interests have arrived. Of course, at 29 he can do very well in all the top European clubs and many are interested in him. However, I want to close by saying that I am happy that today all Italians can breathe the air of Champions.”

Elsewhere, Jermaine Jenas has accused Jorginho of faking an injury in the Euro 2020 final:

“His foot deflects off the ball and catches Jack right on the top of his knee,” Jenas said during BBC commentary.

“He’s [Grealish] is fuming. It’s not a great challenge, it’s a poor challenge, he’s gone with his studs, it’s a shocking challenge in the end.

“Seeing it over and over again and the angle he’s gone in with his studs. It’s a terrible challenge.

“When I saw him [Jorginho] get up and then throw himself back down to the ground I thought, ‘you’ve done something wrong here’.”
