Barcelona to sign Chelsea's Jorginho on a free transfer next summer

Sun 18 September 2022 | 13:02

With only one year remaining on his Chelsea contract, it’s been reported earlier that the Italy international wants to move back to his homeland. However, it’s been reported that Italian is among Blaugrana’s major targets for the next summer.

Winning a Europa League, Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, and FIFA Club World Cup with the London club,

Jorginho

joined Chelsea from Napoli in 2018 as he established himself as one of the club’s key members during his spell. He made 47 appearances in all competitions for

Chelsea

last season and scored nine goals, all of them from the penalty spot.

However, the Italy international enters the final year of his contract this summer, and according to

The Sun,

Barcelona is interested to lure the Italian away from Chelsea next summer on a pattern similar to the free transfers of Andreas Christensen and Franck Kessie, with the club's sporting director Mateu Alemany considering the Euro 2022 winner as Sergio Busquets' replacement in the

Blaugrana's line-up

.

 

Despite being one of

Italy's

key players at Euro 2020 and was also included in the Team of the Tournament, Jorginho was to blame for Italy's absence from this November's

World Cup

as he missed a crucial penalty in their final qualifier against Switzerland.
