Chelsea turn attention to Kante, Jorginho extensions after Thiago Silva decision

Chelsea will move onto other contract after making a decision on Thiago Silva's future, reports have claimed.

36-year-old Silva is close to agreeing a one-year extension, with the two parties hashing out the final details of his new contract.

The Blues will then begin discussions with N'Golo Kante and Jorginho over new contracts, according to Fabrizio Romano.

Kante, 29, will become a free agent in 2023 and has become a target for Inter Milan.

Jorginho's deal expires at the same time as Kante, with the Italy international continuing to be linked with a return to Serie A.


Both players have thrived under Thomas Tuchel and the club wants to ensure they remain part of their long-term future.
