Juventus are to offer Chelsea three players in a potential move for Jorginho, as Maurizio Sarri hopes to work with the midfielder for the third time at a third club.
Sarri worked with Jorginho at Napoli, where the midfielder was an integral part of the team, and one of his first moves as Chelsea boss was to bring the Italian to the Premier League with him.
The Italian now reportedly wants the midfielder to join him at Juve, especially as Miralem Pjanic looks set to leave Turin in the summer, and the Old Lady are willing to offer them players in a swap deal.
Spanish outlet SPORT claim that Douglas Costa, Adrien Rabiot and Federico Bernardeschi are all on the table for any potential deal.
Transfers could get quite complicated due to the Covid-19 crisis causing financial difficulties for clubs and swap deals are likely to become more prevalent.
The move for Jorginho comes down to the fact that Pjanic is likely to leave the Allianz Stadium, with Barcelona keen to sign the midfielder.
Swaps are likely in that move as well with the Serie A leaders reportedly interested in Barca's Arthur, but the Brazilian isn't keen on leaving the Nou Camp.
Sarri's side have also been linked with a move for former midfielder Paul Pogba from Manchester United, though once again any move would likely have to include swaps.
According to the SPORT report, Barca could have some big competition for Pjanic this summer, with PSG reportedly also interested.
The paper claims that former Juve boss Max Allegri will replace Thomas Tuchel at the Parc des Princes this summer, ahead of Ligue 1 starting their 2020/21 season in August.
Allegri was good for Pjanic during his time in Turin and the Italian champions could attempt to get Marco Verratti as part of any deal for the 30-year-old.
Jorginho didn't have the best start to life in England last season, as Sarri's side struggled, but he and the team got better as the season went on.
He has started 23 games for Frank Lampard's team this season but his sale could allow for N'Golo Kante to move back into a more defensive role, where he has excelled in the past.
