Chelsea midfielder Jorginho is reportedly wanted by Serie A side AS Roma, and their CEO Guido Fienga is said to have made a trip to London.
Fienga’s visit to London would prepare for Roma’s new foundation under new owners Friedkin, Tuttomercatoweb claimed.
And former Napoli midfielder Jorginho is a name everybody at Roma likes, including their manager Paulo Fonseca.
This could be an opportunity for Chelsea who are reportedly ready to offload the 28-year-old to make space and raise funds for potential defensive recruitments (Sky Sports).
Tuttomercatoweb’s report mentioned that Juventus previously made direct contacts with Chelsea over Jorginho, with the Serie A champions looking for a potential swap deal.
Then the Maurizio Sarri’s sacking happened, and the negotiations stopped.
Many Chelsea fans were pessimistic about selling Jorginho this summer after Sarri’s sacking, understandably so, because Jorginho is often seen as a system player and a reunion with his former manager made the most sense.
Jorginho fell behind in the pecking order at the start of the Premier League resumption, with both N’Golo Kante and Billy Gilmour ahead of him for the holding midfield role.
Although, Kante and Gilmour’s injuries helped Jorginho reclaimed his spot after being on the sidelines for five consecutive games.
But now Roma is reportedly interested, a return to Serie A could be on the cards for Jorginho.
Roma would need to sell Amadou Diawara, though, the report added. And Fienga’s reported trip to London would also serve that purpose since Arsenal are reportedly interested in the Guinea international.
