Italian Champions Looking At £50m Chelsea Acquisition
Juventus are allegedly ready to explore the possibility of landing Chelsea midfielder Jorginho in the summer transfer window….Italian Champions Looking At £50m Chelsea Acquisition
The 29-year-old star has been a key player for manager Thomas Tuchel since the German’s arrival as boss.
The Italy international has been consistently linked with a return to Serie A over the last 12 months or so, though, with the Old Lady thought to have a long-standing interest in the player’s services.
According to a recent report from Italian daily newspaper Tuttosport, Bianconeri are keen to strengthen their midfield options ahead of the 2021-22 season and have identified Jorginho as a possible acquisition.
He has scored six times in 26 appearances for his English side during the current campaign, including five goals in 18 top-flight outings.
The former Napoli player’s current contract at Stamford Bridge is due to expire in the summer of 2023.
Meantime, Chelsea are allegedly set to pocket a portion of any sum Brighton & Hove Albion receive for Arsenal-linked full-back Tariq Lamptey if he leaves the club in the summer.
With Hector Bellerin supposedly set to leave the North London club at the end of the campaign, Arsenal would be expected to bring in a new right-back for the 2021-22 campaign.
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano recently stated that the Gunners are indeed keen on a deal for Lamptey.
However, The Express states that Brighton are not prepared to let the player leave on the cheap, as the Blues will receive a sell-on fee if their former ace seeks pastures new this year.
The 20-year-old signed a new deal with the Seagulls until June 2025 back in January, but the report also claims that his bumper fresh contract does not include a buyout clause.
