Santos says Juve have not made contact regarding Chelsea holding midfielder Jorginho.

Holding midfielder Jorginho joined Premier League side Chelsea on a five-year contract back in 2018.

According to widespread reports, Sarri is eager to bring Jorginho to the Turin.


Jorginho's agent Joao Santos says the midfielder is solely focused on Chelsea and has not been contacted by Serie A champions Juventus.


Jorginho continues to be linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge, with reports suggesting former Blues coach Maurizio Sarri sees the 28-year-old as a possible replacement for Miralem Pjanic, who has become a reported target for PSG and Barcelona.


"I only hear about these rumours from the newspapers, because nobody from Juventus has contacted me," Santos told TuttoJuve.com.



"Maurizio Sarri appreciates him very much as a person and a player, they worked very well together, but that's all there is to it right now. The player is focused only on Chelsea, he's resumed training and is preparing for the Premier League restart.


"In my view, it would be difficult for the Bianconeri to buy him today, because the transfer market has changed with the pandemic and Jorginho has a contract with Chelsea until 2023. He is the vice-captain and considered an important player for the squad.


"I don't just mean Juventus, but all the biggest European clubs would struggle to pay that much for one player right now."


Santos added: "If it should happen [a proposal from Juve], I say that anyone who wants Jorginho has to talk to Chelsea and Marina [Granovskaia]. Then we will evaluate together what to do. That would not be a problem."
