The agent of Chelsea midfielder Jorginho has revealed that his client would be interested in making return to the Italian top-tier if Napoli make an approach for his services.

The 29-year-old has been a vital player for the West London club since Thomas Tuchel’s arrival as Frank Lampard’s successor, however, the Italy international’s future in London still has been up in the air.

A recent report suggested that Maurizio Sarri would attempt to secure services of Jorginho if the experienced manager returned to the Italian giants as head coach after the end of the current campaign.

Jorge Santos, who has been the agent of Chelsea midfielder, has said that any offer from the Italian giants in the upcoming market would be ‘evaluated’.

“There are many rumours about that because he did so well at Napoli,” Santos told Radio Marte. “It’s a special moment for him. He is an important player for Chelsea now. However, he is an Italy international, and we are thinking about a return to Serie A if he leaves the Blues.

“If Napoli will make an offer, we’ll evaluate it. He had a great time in Naples, and he has many friends over there.”

Jorginho played 160 games for Serie A giants, Napoli between 2014 and 2018 before moving to Stamford Bridge, where he has featured on 126 occasions in all competitions, including 28 games during the 2020-21 season.
