Jorginho is set to have his contract with Chelsea extended after the Italian snubbed a chance to move to Premier League rivals Arsenal during the summer.
SunSport are reporting that the 28-year-old who was heavily linked with a move away from the Emirates’ club snubbed Arsenal interest in his bid to remain with West London club.
It was gathered that the Blues are already preparing to hand him a new contract with AreaNapoli reporting that the player is preparing to have his contract updated.

Jorginho’s current contract with the Stamford Bridge outfit is worth £110,000 per week and expires in 2023.
The Italian arrived the Premier League club in 2018 for £57.4million after he rejected Manchester City at the last minute and he has gone on to score 12 goals in 102 appearances for the Blues.
Jorginho began the 2020/2020 Premier League season in style scoring Chelsea’s first of the campaign when he slotted home a penalty away at Brighton.
However, the former Napoli star failed to convert his penalty kick in their loss to Liverpool, but got a brace in four minutes against Crystal Palace before the international break - despite Tammy Abraham's protestations.
Recall that Tammy Abraham was in the middle of controversy after the Chelsea forward made an attempt to take a penalty kick during their 4-0 rout of Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon, October 3.
There was confusion moments before the Blues’ scored their fourth goal as the hosts were handed a second penalty after Mamadou Sakho tripped Kai Havertz in the box.
Abraham was seen dragging the ball with Jorginho who had scored a penalty kick four minutes earlier for their third of the afternoon, but the Italian eventually got his brace during the game.
Speculation surrounded Jorginho's future for much of the summer.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Victor Moses should have completed another loan move to Inter Milan on deadline day but reports claim the Nigerian did not return to Italy on time.
Nerazzurri boss Antonio Conte was still interested in working with the Chelsea winger for another loan spell but Moses reportedly failed to show up. It is understood that the Italian manager was familiar with Moses rather than signing Rennes' wing-back Dalbert Henrique.
