Chelsea have reached an agreement for Serie A star

The player is reportedly in London ahead of a potential move

Chelsea are expected to overhaul their side this summer after an underwhelming campaign last season. They finished 5th in the league and will miss the Champions League in the upcoming season.

Though Blues ended the campaign on a bright note after defeating Manchester United in the FA Cup final. But they need reinforcements in key areas to compete for Silverware in the upcoming season.

They have been behind in the transfer window compared to other Premier League rivals as they didn’t clarify their managerial situation. Antonio Conte has been heavily linked with a summer exit since the end of the season.

The Italian has been linked with an exit for quite some now after a decline in club’s performances during the last campaign. The coach’s future has been under scrutiny since before the season began, as he negotiated a pay-rise without extending his contract and complaints over the club’s transfer policy.

The English club have finally parted ways with the former Juventus manager as they announced on their official website. Former Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri is expected to be announced as their new manager in the coming days and he will be joined by one of his former players.

Jorginho has arrived in London ahead of a potential £57m move to Chelsea, Sky Sports News understands.

The Italy International joined the Serie A giants from Hellas Verona in 2013 and has been a mainstay in the midfield since then. He has constantly performed at the highest level and developed himself as one of the best midfielders in the league.

The 26 year old was pivotal for the Italian side last term, linking the play between defense and attack. He scored 2 goals and assisted 4 in all the competitions.

Manchester City were expected to complete the signing of the Italian midfielder before the World Cup but they are yet to get the deal over the line. Partenopei wants £48 million and are refusing to budge on that valuation.

But the player has snubbed the chance to join the Premier League giants and is instead will join the London club.
