Jorginho, 28, played under Sarri at Napoli before following him to Stamford Bridge in 2018.

According to The National, Juventus also held talks on personal terms with representatives of the Chelsea star.
Jorginho recently revealed that he considered leaving Chelsea after receiving unfair criticism during his first season.
The midfielder was taken to Stamford Bridge by Sarri for £ 57 million in the summer of 2018.
The Italian international struggled to adapt to the Premier League in his first season, while Sarri played with him in midfield to allow N´Golo Kante to roam the field.
Jorginho told FourFourTwo that the criticisms he received were unfair, but only served as a motivation for the rest of his campaign.
"Last year, the fans criticized me a lot because I arrived with another manager and, in my opinion, I ended up hearing some things that were honestly unfair.
"But I never challenged the opinions of fans and other people who criticized me. Quite the opposite, in fact – it gave me strength because I knew they were wrong.
"In the back of my mind, it was like," I'm going to prove them wrong and work silently, as I always did, because it was never easy for me. "
