Chelsea have a battle on their hands to keep hold of Jorginho

Chelsea midfielder Jorginho may be following his former manager Maurizio Sarri to Juventus, according to Darren Lewis at the Mirror.

Sarri departed Chelsea to take over at the Italian champions and is keen to take his former player with him. Jorginho was with Sarri at Napoli and followed him to Stamford Bridge. It seems that the pair are keen on being reunited once again.

The style of play that Sarri adopts suits Jorginho, which did not go down too well in West London but does works in Italy.

The big problem for both Juventus and Sarri is that Chelsea is subject to a two-window transfer ban. The Blues will not be keen on selling any player they cannot replace, not even an unpopular player like Jorginho.

Frank Lampard is being touted as Sarri’s replacement and would have to sanction any transfer. The chances are that he will not want to see the team weakened. The Brazilian will be one of the issues that Lampard will have to deal with once he is installed as the new Chelsea manager.

Will this happen? Probably not this summer but it cannot be ruled out for next year. Jorginho and Sarri seem destined to be together, it is just down to timing.
