Transfer of Dusan Vlahovic from Fiorentina, cost Juventus a full 67 million pounds. But this does not seem to stop the "Old Lady" from pursuing other goals in the market. According to the latest reports of the Italian media, Juventus are looking for the card of Chelsea ace, Jorginho.
The Italian has been in super-shape throughout the year he left behind, but also at the start of 2022. Jorginho triumphed with Chelsea in Champions League, just a few weeks before he lifted another trophy, that of Euro 2020 with the Italian national team. The midfielder played a key role throughout the representative's journey, and as a result of good performances was ranked third in the awards for the "Golden Ball" this year.
But the former Napoli star has only 18 months left on his contract with the Londoners, and Chelsea could benefit financially by selling the player's card in the summer. This is because despite the good performances, Chelsea executives are quite strict when it comes to the terms of new contracts, for players over 30 years old. This means that if the Italian demands a higher salary or additional benefits, his claims will be viewed with skepticism. While Juventus on the other hand has already given evidence that it is willing to spend large sums, if it comes to the right player.
Another reason why Chelsea could give up on Jorginho are the many alternatives in midfield. In this ward, Thomas Tuchel has players like N'Golo Kante, Mason Mount, Mateo Kovacic and Ruben Loftus-Cheek available, not to mention the other talented names of the club academy, who are waiting for the opportunity to become active. Conor Gallagher and Billy Gilmour, who also play in the same position, are expected to return from the clubs where they play on loan.
