Barcelona eye Pjanic-Jorginho swap deal with Chelsea

Wed 12 May 2021 | 20:31

Barcelona are interested in signing Chelsea midfielder Jorginho and are ready to offer Miralem Pjanic to the Blues in a swap deal, claim reports.

The Italian midfielder has enjoyed his best season at

Chelsea

under

Thomas Tuchel

, who replaced

Frank Lampard

in the Stamford Bridge in January.

The 29-year-old has been an integral part of the Blues’ revival under German coach, and according to Spanish outlet

Sport

the 29-year-old’s form has attracted interest from

Barcelona

.

The report also says the LaLiga giants are even looking to complete a swap deal with Chelsea where Miralem Pjanic and Jorginho would be exchanged.

Pjanic

, who joined Barcelona for £54m from

Juventus

last summer, has fallen out of favor with Barcelona boss

Ronald Koeman

this season. And with financial problems caused by the coronavirus pandemic, it is less likely for the Catalans to cash in on him so they are eager to exchange the Bosnia- Herzegovina international for Jorginho.

Jorginho

has still two years left to his current deal at Stamford Bridge with reports claiming the Blues are preparing talks over a new contract for him.

Sport also claims that if Chelsea are not interested, the Catalans may suggest a trade with

Inter

involving Pjanic and an unnamed Nerazzurri player.
