Juventus have made another approach for Chelsea midfielder Jorginho, according to reports in Italy.

Juventus were previously linked with Jorginho during Maurizio Sarri’s time in charge of the Old Lady.

According to Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus remain interested in signing the Italy international.

Jorginho has become a crucial player for both Chelsea and Italy in recent years.

He helped Thomas Tuchel’s side win the Champions League last season and was part of the Italian squad that won Euro 2020 under Roberto Mancini.

The 30-year-old has continued his impressive form this season, scoring nine goals in 29 games for Chelsea.

But his long-term future is in doubt with his current contract at the club due to expire in the summer of 2023.

Juventus remain keen to sign Jorginho and have made contact with his 'entourage', according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

The Turin club are also said to be considering a move for Barcelona’s Frenkie De Jong.

Joringho’s agent has confirmed Juventus tried to sign the midfielder during Sarri’s time at the club between 2019 and 2020.

“In the past, when Sarri was the coach, there was a possibility that Jorginho would come to Juventus,” Joao Santos told Radio Bianconera in September.

“The Juventus director made an approach, it was a possibility.”

Santos also revealed Jorginho would like to return to Italian football before the end of his career.

“He has a contract with Chelsea until 2023. Obviously it would be a dream for him to return to Italy, hopefully after winning the World Cup,” added Santos.

“We’ll have to see what the market looks like in a couple of years and what the other situations are.”

Meanwhile, Juventus are expected to complete the signing of in-demand striker Dusan Vlahovic in the coming days.

Sky Sports News claim Juventus have agreed a £62.8m fee with Fiorentina for the striker, who has scored 20 goals in 24 appearances this season.

Arsenal and Tottenham were also interested in Vlahovic but were reportedly unable to match Fiorentina’s asking price.
