Chelsea dismiss talk of Jorginho sale

Chelsea management have no plans to lose Jorginho this summer.

The London Evening Standard says Jorginho has been linked with a move to Turin following Maurizio Sarri's decision to quit Stamford Bridge for the Serie A Champions.

The midfielder has a close bond with Sarri having played under the Italian for three years at Napoli before they both switched to Chelsea last summer.

Jorginho, who cost £57.4m, was an integral part of the last campaign, making 57 appearances in total.

But he came under heavy criticism for failing to make a single assist and was targeted by opponents as a weakness.

However it is believed Chelsea see him as an integral part of their plans and have no desire to sell him to anyone.
