Chelsea could be offered the chance to sign Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic in a swap deal with the Italian side that would take Jorginho to Turin, according to reports.

Pjanic moved to the Serie A from Roma in 2016 and played a vital role for the club in his first three seasons, making at least 30 top flight appearances each campaign and featuring in 10 or more Champions League games on two occasions.

This season, his importance has not waned and he had made 22 Serie A appearances – missing only four matches – before the season was brought to a halt in March.

According to relibable journalist Gianluca Di Marzio – via his website – however, Juve boss Maurizio Sarri has made Pjanic the “pawn” in any prospective swap deal the club will look to make.

This follows reports that the Bosnian international – who has 92 caps for his country – rejected approaches from Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain.

Di Marzio claims that Chelsea could now be offered the midfielder in a swap deal to bring Jorginho back to the Italian top flight.

Reports over the past few months have claimed that former Blues boss Sarri is keen to link up again with Jorginho, the pair having worked together at Napoli before both moving to West London.


However, such a swap deal lags behind Pjanic’s prospective move to PSG, which it is claimed is still in the running.

In other news, Juventus are also reportedly considering a swap deal involving Federico Bernadeschi, this time in the hope of bringing Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba back to Turin.
