Premier League giants Chelsea are reportedly considering to sell Jorginho in a bid to fund Declan Rice's move this summer.

The 28-year-old has a deal with the Blues until 2023 but he appears to be one of the players Frank Lampard is likely to offload before the start of a new campaign.

Although they have already completed the signing of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner, they are not done in the transfer market just yet.

Meanwhile, Chelsea former boss Maurizio Sarri has been tipped to reunite with his former player at the Allianz Stadium.

Jorginho's agent Joao Santos admitted his client is open to the move after saying: "Sarri has never called Jorginho personally to talk about Juventus.

"I know there's talk in the papers, but we have never had direct contact with Sarri or even director of sport Fabio Paratici.

"Everyone knows there is a very strong rapport between Sarri and Jorginho after five years working together, I'd be a hypocrite to deny that, but I also want to remind you that Jorginho has three years left on his Chelsea contract."
