Chelsea midfielder Jorginho would be interested in a return to Italian football with former club Napoli if he leaves the Blues. This is according to his agent Jorge Santos. Jorge Santos talked about Jorginho in a chat with Radio Marte. According to him, his client won’t have any issues returning to Napoli as suggested by several transfer rumours. Jorginho has been strongly linked with a return to StadioMaradona to play for Europa League campaigners Napoli.
Jorginho played 160 games during a four-year period between 2014 and 2018. Since he moved to Chelsea three years ago, Jorginho has scored 16 times in 125 appearances for the club. The Italian international has two years left on his current deal with Chelsea. When he joined the Blues from Italian football outfit Napoli, Jorginhopenned a five-year deal until the end of the 2022/23 season.
Jorginho has become an important player for Chelsea and he’s the designated penalty taker in the team. He has been in top form since the appointment of Thomas Tuchel as a replacement for Frank Lampard. Chelsea sacked Lampard after a poor run in the league in December. Since Tuchel was confirmed as the Chelsea manager, the German has not tasted defeat but that would be severely tested with crucial games on the horizon in the Champions League, the Premier League and the FA Cup.
