An Italian report suggests Juventus could replicate a Juan Cuadrado-type deal in order to bring Chelsea midfielder Jorginho to Turin this summer.
The Serie A leaders may have already had an incoming midfielder in Arthur who was signed as part of a swap deal involving Miralem Pjanic.
However, should the opportunity to bring his midfield maestro back under his wing present itself, Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri would not want to miss it, Goal‘s report claims.
The report also mentioned that the 28-year-old is currently unhappy with his situation at Chelsea after spending most of his time on the sidelines after the Premier League restart, with his only recent appearance coming as a substitute against Crystal Palace yesterday.
Chelsea could be tempted to let go of the midfielder, but they reportedly would want to recoup the £57m they paid in 2018.
And a report from Tuttosport claimed Juventus may propose another Cuadrado-type arrangement to land Jorginho.
Cuadrado joined Juventus in 2016 in a three-year loan deal with an obligation to buy at the end of his loan spell.
The Old Lady was to pay €5million (£4.5m) per year in a loan fee before paying the rest of the transfer fee (€15m or £13.5m) for a total of €25m (£22.5m).
In the end, Cuadrado spent just one season on loan in Italy before Juventus paid the remaining €20m (£18m), and a similar agreement could be used for Jorginho.
The report also added that Juventus may want to include either Adrien Rabiot or Aaron Ramsey in their proposal.
