Chelsea open doors for Jorginho offers to fund Rice move

Chelsea are willing to sell Italian midfielder Jorginho to fund a move for Declan Rice.

While Jorginho started well under Frank Lampard this season, he barely featured since the Project Restart portion of the campaign.

And theTelegraph claims Lampard is willing to sell Jorginho back to Italy to fund a move for West Ham United star Rice.

Juventus have the biggest interest in Jorginho, as his former Napoli and Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is manager there.

The Blues would have to pay nearly £65 million to secure Rice from West Ham.

They will be hoping for a big Juve offer for Jorginho. But it may be a challenge, as the club recently signed Arthur from Barcelona for a huge fee.
