Juventus are considering a four-player swap deal in order to land Jorginho and Marcos Alonso from Chelsea. Maurizio Sarri is eager to raid his former club for the midfielder and left-back. The Italian spent one season in charge at Stamford Bridge before returning to Serie A.
Juventus are eager to fulfil Sarri’s wishes in the summer transfer window, which looks set to be affected by the coronavirus crisis.
Jorginho, perhaps unsurprisingly, is at the top of the 63-year-old’s target list.
Sarri took Jorginho with him when he left Napoli for Chelsea in the summer of 2018, and regularly played him, despite criticism from Blues supporters.
Juventus look set to revamp their midfield amid doubts over Miralem Pjanic’s future.
They value Bernardeschi at €35m (£31.4m) and Rabiot at €25m (£22.5m) so will offer an additional €20m (£18m) to sweeten the deal.
Calciomercato do not state whether the proposal would be accepted by Chelsea.
Jorginho has established himself as a regular in Lampard’s team after a difficult maiden campaign at the club.
Alonso has won three major honours since joining Chelsea from Fiorentina in 2016 but has shared the left-back role with Emerson Palmieri this term.
Chelsea are shaping up for a hectic summer of transfer activity.
A deal has already been completed for Ajax playmaker Hakim Ziyech, who will cost an initial €40m (£35.9m).
While RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner has agreed a five-year contract to move to Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea have also opened negotiations with Brentford winger Said Benrahma.
