JUVENTUS want to sign Chelsea star Jorginho this summer, according to reports.
Jorginho, 30, has caught the eye after finishing third in the Ballon d’Or last year.
Juve boss Massimiliano Allegri is reportedly planning a rebuild at the end of the season and he is looking to upgrade his midfield options.
And Jorginho is one of his transfer targets according to Italian outlet Tuttosport.
The midfielder’s contract expires in 2023 and Juventus are looking to take advantage of that situation.
Thomas Tuchel is determined to tie down the Italian long-term and avoid questions over his future, as has happened with Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger.
And the Chelsea boss’ determination to keep Jorginho could mean he is going nowhere, at least not this summer.
The Blues have been heavily linked with a move for Declan Rice and Jorginho’s sale could help the club meet West Ham’s £150million asking price.
But Jorginho has not made any suggestion that he wants to leave Stamford Bridge and he is concentrated on winning more silverware with the club.
The Euro 2020 winner has even been working with a psychotherapist since last summer to help his mindset in overcoming defeat.

Much has also been made about the future of N’Golo Kante amid his recent decline in form.
Tuchel also showed faith in the Frenchman and despite Matteo Kovacic’s impressive performances this season it appears Tuchel still favours Jorginho and Kante.
