The agent of Chelsea midfielder Jorginho says that his client would be interested in joining Juventus this summer.

The agent of Chelsea midfielder Jorginho has revealed that his client would be interested in joining Juventus this summer should an offer arrive from the Italian champions.

Joao Santos recently admitted that the Italy international could consider leaving Stamford Bridge at the end of the 2019-20 campaign despite still having more than two years left to run on his deal.

The 28-year-old's agent has now talked up a potential switch to "the most important club in Italy" during this summer's transfer window.

"Anything can happen in the transfer market. I said 'why not?' to Juventus because Jorginho has a three-year contract with Chelsea, so the priority is clearly to remain there, but we could also evaluate leaving the club in July," Santos told

"In that case, if this were to happen, we'd be ready to consider the various proposals that will arrive from Italy, France and England. Why shouldn't it be possible to join Juventus? They are the most important club in Italy, the one that has won the most in recent years. We wouldn't say no to the Bianconeri.

"If Juventus, who already have a very strong squad, were to need him and Chelsea were ready to sell, we would certainly evaluate their proposal. It'd then be up to the clubs to reach an agreement.

"Nobody from Juve, not now or in the past, have contacted me to talk about Jorginho. The club would need to speak to Chelsea first, as talking to me won't change the situation very much."

Jorginho, who worked under head coach Maurizio Sarri at both Napoli and Chelsea, has scored seven times in 32 appearances for the Blues during the current season.
