Jগrgenho’s agent Joao Santos insisted that Juventus had not asked anything about the Chelsea star, although he acknowledged that any player wanted to play for the Serie Champions.

Juventus head coach Mauricio Sari is keen to reunite with Turin midfielder Jurginho – the pair have worked together at Chelsea and Napoli.

Jorgenho has emerged as a possible replacement for Miralem Poznik, who has joined Lariga champions Barcelona and Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain.

Asked about Jorgenho’s future and Juve’s interest, Santos told Radio Kiss: “Juventus is one of the top teams in Europe and any player wants to play for them.

“I haven’t heard [sporting director Fabio] Paraty, he didn’t call me. Jorgenho has three years left on his contract with Chelsea, he is doing well in London.

“I’ve read about connecting with Juve through newspapers and various outlets.”

Santos added: “I repeat, Juventus is one of the top clubs in football.”

Jর্গrgenho followed Sari to Chelsea from Napoli in 2018 before returning to Italy as Juve the following season.

Jorgenho scored four goals and provided two assists for Chelsea in the Premier League before the end of the Coron Virus epidemic.

In total, Jorginho scored seven goals throughout all competitions in 2019-20.
