However, Jorginho's agent – Joao Santos – insisted he had heard nothing from Juventus regarding the 28-year-old. And Santos said Jorginho could extend his deal at the Premier League club, where he is contracted until 2023.

"Juventus? I read around, but I never had any contact with them," he told CalcioMercato on Tuesday. "To date, I know absolutely nothing about this situation.

"He is very happy in London, where he is showing his worth and where he still has three more years of contract. And in July, there is the possibility of adding a fourth and opening negotiations for a renewal of the contract with Chelsea.
