Juventus to sign Chelsea’s Jorginho if Locatelli’s deal flops

Fri 05 March 2021 | 18:07

The Serie A side could be ready to make a move on the Italy International if they fail to convince Locatelli into joining their squad.

According to

Calciomercato

,

Juventus

hope to enhance their midfield area by signing

Manuel Locatelli

, but if Andrea Pirlo’s side fail to sign the

Sassuolo

footballer, they will very likely shift their attention to

Chelsea

’s

Jorginho

.  

Juventus currently sit ten points behind the Serie A leaders,

Inter

, and it is expected that the 2020-21 campaign will give an end to their decade-long reign as the Italian league champions.

On the other hand, Jorginho’s contract with Chelsea extends till 2023, but if Thomas Tuchel chooses to exclude the player from his future plans, the Blues could be ready to part ways with the

Italy

International in the summer.

Another Chelsea star, who lately talked about receiving an interest from

Paris Saint-Germain

under Tuchel, is

N’Golo Kante

.

The German boss also confirmed his admiration for the Frenchman back in his days with PSG after Kante refused to join the Parisians.

Telling

Chelsea’s official website

about him choosing to stay at Stamford Bridge instead of joining the Ligue 1 side, Kante said:

“I knew in the past there was some contact with Paris Saint-Germain when he was the manager, but it was not something I wanted.”

“It did not happen because I was happy at Chelsea and I stayed here. I haven’t spoken to the manager about it!”

After defeating in their recent

Premier League

game, Tuchel’s men will prepare to face

Everton

.
