Agent Joao Santos, who represents Jorginho, says a new contract with Chelsea is currently a priority for the Italy international despite rumors of interest in his services from other clubs.
The 31-year-old midfielder is reportedly of interest to Barcelona, as well as former club Napoli, where he spent four years before joining Chelsea in 2018 for nearly €60m. However, Santos dismissed rumors of Napoli’s interest, saying he and his client would appreciate it, but also clarifying that nothing is currently happening on that front.
Meanwhile, Chelsea appear keen to boost their midfield ranks, reportedly showing strong interest in Benfica’s World Cup star Enzo Fernandez, and Fabrizio Romano reports they are on the verge of signing the 18-year-old Andrej Santos of Vasco de Gama.
Brazilian midfielder Andrey Santos will arrive in London today to undergo medical tests and then sign a long-term contract with Chelsea. He signed a 12.5 million euro contract with Vasco da Gama. 🔵🛬 #CFC
