Jorginho in talks ahead of potential Chelsea move

Jorginho is in London for talks with Chelsea, who have agreed a fee with Napoli for the Italy midfielder.

Chelsea have agreed to pay an initial fee of around £50m for Jorginho, who is also wanted by Manchester City.

Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis suggested earlier this week that Jorginho, 26, wants to join Chelsea rather than City.

De Laurentiis was quoted as saying: “If the player would rather live in London than Manchester, I can understand that.

“If Chelsea are paying him even more, I can understand that too. Jorginho and Sarri together again? Jorginho would go to Chelsea regardless of Sarri.”

The Brazil-born Jorginho, who has played eight times for Italy, joined Napili from Verona in 2014.
