Chelsea’s Jorginho and Emerson agent recently hinted that both stars could be exiting Stamford Bridge with the Brazilian full-back to join Napoli and Jorginho open to return to Serie A.
Joringho, 29, joined Chelsea in 2018 from Serie A Napoli in a transfer that cost the Blues a whopping £ 51.3 million, according to Transfer market.
Since joining the London club, Jorginho, who operates primarily as a central midfielder, has appeared in 115 matches in all competitions and directly participated in 16 goals.
The 29-year-old creative midfielder was part of the Chelsea squad that lifted the 2018-19 Europa League during a campaign that saw the Italian in 11 European matches.
Yet despite what has been a decent two-year stint with Chelsea, Jorginho’s long-term future has become the subject of recent speculation.
The latest in the ongoing saga comes directly from midfielder Joao Santos’s agent, who has revealed that his 29-year-old client would welcome a return to Italy.
Speaking live on Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli, as reported Corriere dello Sport, Santos said: “It was an excellent year for Jorge, he also did very well in the national team.
“Next year will be the European Championship, where he hopes to do very well with Italy.
“As for Chelsea, they are not in good shape now. ranking but being a young team takes time, but I’m sure he would like to return to Italy at the end of the contract ”.
Santos, who also represents full-back Emerson, inadvertently dropped a hint that the 26-year-old defender might be on his way to join Napoli.
“Jorginho is very good friends with Emerson Palmieri”, Santos said. “I don’t know if he talked about his possible arrival in Naples”
