Juventus are so desperate to get their hands on Jorginho this summer that they have offered the Blues the pick of three players, claims a report.

Juve coach Maurizio Sarri is intent on a reunion with the Italy international after signing him from his old club Napoli for Chelsea in 2018 for £50m with £7m in potential add-ons.

Sarri is desperate to land the 28-year-old for a third time and reports claim he offered Miralem Pjanic in exchange but the Bosnian turned down the move to Stamford Bridge.

Now though Sport report that Chelsea have been offered the pick of three players in a bid for Juve to land Jorginho.

The three players in question are Douglas Costa, Federico Bernardeschi and Adrien Rabiot.

Brazilian Costa has been mentioned as a target for Man Utd, but more recently he has been linked with a straight swap move for Atletico’s Thomas Partey. However, Lampard maybe interested in the winger, especially with Pedro and Willian likely to leave this summer.

Lampard is thought to want to keep Jorginho, who has steadily improved in west London and ESPN recently claimed that Jorginho and N’Golo Kante were two players Lampard would not sell this summer.

However, the breakthrough of Billy Gilmour may well have changed Lampard’s thinking surrounding Jorginho.




Bernardeschi, 26, is also on offer and could be looking for a move to get regular games.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, the Turin club’s stance has forced Bernardeschi to look at his options and he is now considering a summer transfer.

Bernardeschi wants to secure his place in the Azzurri squad for next summer’s European Championships and Chelsea could be an option.

Finally, Adrien Rabiot is another who could move to Stamford Bridge, with the France international struggling to find his feet in Serie A.
