JORGINHO remains the favourite to be reunited with his old boss Maurizio Sarri at Juventus – even though the pair have not spoken for a year.
The £57.4million Chelsea midfielder is tipped to make the move back to Italy, possibly in exchange for either attacker Douglas Costa, Bosnian midfielder Miralem Pjanic or winger Federico Bernardeschi.
But Sarri has not contacted the player since he left Stamford Bridge last June.
Blues boss Frank Lampard would be happy to sell either Jorginho or N’Golo Kante to fund more rebuilding at Stamford Bridge.
However, Jorginho himself loves life in London and has established himself as a fans’ favourite.
Sarri had the 28-year-old at Napoli for four years and he then became one of his first signings when he took over in West London two years ago.
But The Athletic claim he has not once contacted the player once.
It is not believed the pair have fallen out, but have just not been in contact.
Kante has been linked with a £70m move to Real Madrid.
Lamps has options in midfield and is now focused on defensive signings.
He is looking at a midfield of teenage sensation Billy Gilmour, Serbian Mateo Kovacic and England youngster Mason Mount next season.
He has already brought in Ajax playmaker Hakim Ziyech for an initial £33.6m.
This week the Blues should wrap their £54m deal for RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner.
He also wants Bayer Leverkusen attacker Kai Havertz.
