Jorginho’s agents said there has been no approach from Juventus amid a reported potential swap deal involving his client and Miralem Pjanic.

Reports from Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio and the Guardian previously claimed Chelsea and Juventus had begun talks over a potential swap deal involving the two midfielders.

The reports said Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri is keen to bring Jorginho, whom he previously worked with at Napoli and Chelsea, back under his wing in Turin.

The agent told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli (as reported by Metro): “Juventus are one of the top clubs in Europe, all players would like an experience there.

“But I didn’t hear from anyone, [Fabio] Paratici hasn’t call me.

“Jorginho is currently a Chelsea player, has a three-year contract and is doing well in London.”

When asked about a possible reunion with Maurizio Sarri, Santos said: “I repeat… Juventus are a great club, among the best in Europe.”

Italian outlet Calciomercato said the 28-year-old is top of Sarri’s shortlist for the summer transfer window.

The report further added that Chelsea would want at least €40million (£36m) for the midfielder and Juventus would try to convince Chelsea to set up a player exchange that would please both parties.
