Even though he's one of Tuchel's first names on the team-sheet, he's eyeing a move away from Stamford Bridge with his contract expiring in June 2023.

However, he could leave before the end of his deal as he harbours ambitions of plying his trade in Italy again.

Via Goal, Joao Santos said: "He has a contract with Chelsea until [June] 2023.

"Obviously, it would be a dream for him to return to Italy, hopefully after winning the World Cup.

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

Santos continued by revealing that Jorginho was close to leaving Chelsea in 2019 when Juventus came calling.

Then-manager Maurizio Sarri wanted his former player with him at Juve until he committed his future to Chelsea.

"In the past, when Sarri was the coach, there was a possibility that Jorginho would come to Juventus," he added.

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